SHARE Abandoned car in Sandy may be linked to shooting

Police detectives have found an abandoned car they believe belongs to the men who allegedly shot two people Saturday.

Salt Lake Police Sgt. Sam Hemingway said the car was found Monday in front of a Sandy home, and detectives are looking for the person that helped the men get back to the car after the shootings.Arthur Sanchez, 21, was shot at least twice and died in a car in an alley at 773 E. Ashton Ave. (2335 South) Saturday night. Carlos Chavez, 15, was also shot but survived.

Hemingway said the shooting appears to have resulted from a robbery. Sanchez, a reputed drug dealer, was first shot while the four men were at Fairmont Park, 2245 S. McClelland St. (1040 East), Hemingway said.

The suspects then told the 15-year-old boy to move his friend from the driver's seat. They then forced Chavez to drive them to the alley, where they allegedly shot him and Sanchez.

On Sunday, police arrested Davey Williams, 19, and Christopher Tilton, 21. The men were booked into the Salt Lake County Jail for investigation of murder, attempted murder, aggravated robbery and aggravated kidnapping.
