Neighbors in the area of 68th South and 52nd West say they heard gunshots around 2:30 am on Thursday and when police arrived they found a man already dead.

“When we arrived, we found a male in the street, deceased, suffering from gunshot wounds,” explains Lieutenant Richard Bell with West Jordan Police.

Officers say the shooter is still at large. They are asking for help to find a light gray or silver Cadillac CTS that most likely has rear passenger side damage.

Cops say someone inside the Cadillac is likely involved with the shooting, after it pulled up alongside a parked black van that had the victim inside.

“[They] get out of the vehicle and several shots are fired at an individual [the victim], that we believe was in the black adventure van,” explains Lt. Bell.

Additional information about the victim has not been made available.
