SOUTH SALT LAKE — Police on Tuesday arrested a man who they say shot another man in the face at a convenience store in South Salt Lake earlier this month.
Christopher Lee Barros, 33, was arrested for investigation of attempted aggravated murder, aggravated robbery, mayhem, felony discharge of a firearm, possession of a weapon by a restricted person, obstruction of justice and possession of drug paraphernalia and burglary tools.
On Dec. 4, just after 6:30 a.m., a shooting was reported at Maverik, 3260 S. West Temple.
A spokeswoman for South Salt Lake police said a man in his late 20s got out of a silver and blue Dodge Durango, stumbling across the gas station parking lot after being shot. He was then taken to the hospital in critical condition.
South Salt Lake police said the man is recovering from his injuries.
Barros has a lengthy criminal history dating back to 2007, that according to court records includes charges for burglary, aggravated kidnapping and drug-related crimes. Police say he was on parole at the time of his arrest.
