SHARE Man is shot to death outside a Kearns club

A man was shot and killed outside a Kearns nightclub early Monday morning.

Raul Apodeca, 32, went with a friend to Rumba's Club, 4050 W. 5415 South. Apodeca got into a confrontation with another man inside the club, Salt Lake County sheriff's deputy Peggy Faulkner said. He told a security guard at the club the man was harassing others, and then he left.

When Apodeca walked outside, the man was waiting. He fired six times as Apodeca was getting into his car, Faulkner said. Apodeca was flown by medical helicopter to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

His friend was not injured. As of press time, the gunman was still free and no description or details about the suspect were available.
