S.L. WOMAN SHOT IN HEAD IN APPARENT ARGUMENT

A Salt Lake woman was fatally wounded Saturday, apparently during an argument with her live-in boyfriend, a Salt Lake police spokesman said.

The woman, name unavailable, was transported by ambulance to LDS Hospital where she died shortly before 10 p.m. after life support was removed. She suffered a .38-caliber revolver wound to the head, said Lt. Car-roll Mays.About 5:40 p.m., the woman, in her mid-40s, and her boyfriend were arguing in a house adjacent to Willie's Lounge & Pool, 1716 S. Main, when some shots were fired, said Mays. Police responded and found the woman inside the house bleeding from the head.

The man apparently surrendered to police without incident, said Mays. Police confiscated a revolver at the scene.

Craig Fredrickson, 41, was arrested and booked into Salt Lake County Jail for investigation of murder.
