Cedar City woman shot and killed early Sunday

CEDAR CITY — A 19-year-old woman was shot and killed early Sunday morning.

In a prepared statement, Cedar City Police Sgt. J.R. Robinson said that upon arrival at the 400 North block of 400 West around 9:30 a.m. officers encountered a male leaving the scene. He was taken into custody for questioning and is considered a person of interest in the investigation.

Inside the apartment police found the body of Misty Lamoreaux, dead of an apparent gunshot wound.

The investigation is ongoing.

Robinson did not return calls from the Deseret News Sunday night seeking more information on the man or events preceding the incident.
