Sagendorf at 600 W. North Temple. The trooper noticed the man had "one wound to the lower chest, center, and one wound to the left shoulder," a Salt Lake police report states. The man said he had been walking for some time.

The man was transported to LDS Hospital, where he underwent surgery for the wounds and was later released.
