W.V. TEEN IS SHOT AT INTERSECTION

A West Valley teenager was hospitalized after he was shot in the neck while riding in a car Friday night.

About 7:45 p.m., the boy, 17, was in a car stopped at the intersection of 4700 South and Bangerter Highway when the shooting occurred."It looks like the suspect car pulled up alongside the car where the victim was riding," said West Valley City Police Lt. Guy Dodge. "Words and gang signs were possibly exchanged before the shots were fired."

The boy was transported by private vehicle to an area hospital, where he remained Saturday night.
