SALT LAKE CITY — Police have identified the 18-year-old man who was fatally shot near the Utah State Capitol early Saturday morning.
Raul Castillo Rivera died of his injuries at a Bountiful hospital after he was "essentially dropped at the curb," Salt Lake City police Sgt. Brandon Shearer said Monday.
Police have few leads on the death they are calling a homicide, Shearer said.
"We're hoping someone saw or heard something that night, because we really don't have a lot," he said.
Early Saturday, hospital officers contacted Salt Lake police saying a man died there from gunshot wounds, Salt Lake police said over the weekend. Rivera died about 1:15 a.m.
Investigators pieced together crime scene near 650 N. Darwin St., where a shooting was reported at about 12:30 a.m.
