3 wounded in house party shooting in South Jordan

SOUTH JORDAN, Utah (AP) — Authorities are searching for a suspect accused of wounding three people at a house party in South Jordan.

Police Lt. Matt Pennington says the shooting happened around 2:30 a.m. Thursday.

Three people were taken to a hospital with varying degrees of injuries.

Pennington says one victim was struck by gunfire eight times and the other two only once.

Two remain in critical condition and the third in stable condition.

Investigators believe they have identified the suspect but Pennington did not release his name.

He says there is no threat to the public.

The shooter is believed to no longer be in the area. Other police agencies in the Salt Lake Valley are searching for him.

Investigators are still trying to determine the motive for the shooting.

  1. House party. 2:30 AM.
    Sounds like they were probably all innocently enjoying a marathon session of Pictionary.
    This is disturbing to me as I once lived in that area. Drugs, gangs, violence. Did I mention drugs and gangs?
