KEARNS — Police are investigating a shooting where both the gunman and victim remain missing.

Investigators believe a person was walking in the area of 5135 South and 4785 West just before 9:30 p.m. Thursday when a car pulled up next to him and someone from inside the vehicle shot him, said Unified Police Lt. Brian Lohrke.

The victim then went to a nearby house seeking help, Lohrke said. The homeowner later told police he could see blood coming the victim's leg, he said.

But the victim left before officers arrived. Police have been checking with local hospitals to see if anyone has walked in on their own with a gunshot wound.

Anyone with information on the incident can call police at 801-743-7000.
