OREM — Orem police continued Wednesday to gather evidence in the case of shots fired in the parking garage of an apartment complex.

Four people were questioned by detectives Tuesday night, but three were eventually released and the fourth arrested on outstanding warrants unrelated to the shooting, according to police. But police say charges would likely be screened against that fourth person.

Nicholas James Jordan, 23, of American Fork, was booked into Utah County Jail on outstanding warrants. He has a lengthy criminal history, according to court records, including convictions for assault in April, and attempted possession of dangerous weapon by a restricted person in December.

The incident began Tuesday about 4:30 p.m. in the parking garage at Promenade Place, 875 S. Geneva Road. Two groups “exchanged gunfire in the underground parking area. Both groups then fled. No one appears to have been injured during the gunfire,” Orem police said in a prepared statement.

One group fired at the other while still in a car, said Orem Police Lt. Trent Colledge. At least three shell casings were recovered, he said. The casings came from two different guns, leading detectives to believe the two groups exchanged shots at each other. The bullets were believed to have hit parts of the concrete parking structure.

At least two of the four detained for questioning live in the apartment complex, police said.

Because of the nature of the call, a SWAT team was deployed to the area.

Orem police stated Wednesday that they “do not believe there is any further danger to anyone within the community at this time.”

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call police at 801-229-7070.
