SALT LAKE CITY — One of two people critically injured in a shooting at a Salt Lake apartment complex overnight has died.

Leticia Smith, 56, of Salt Lake City, died late Tuesday night. As of Wednesday morning, police had not said whether Smith was shot by another person or died of a self-inflicted wound.

The shooting happened about 8:45 p.m. Tuesday inside an apartment at the Windsor Park Apartments, 1798 W. 700 North. Two people were taken to a local hospital with critical injuries. Smith later died at the hospital.

Police have not said whether detectives believe the shooting was the result of one gunman or if each victim fired a shot, but they do not believe there are any outstanding suspects, said Salt Lake Police Sgt. Keith Horrocks.

An updated condition of the second victim was not known Wednesday morning.

He said both shooting victims were believed to be cohabitants.
