TAYLORSVILLE, Utah — Police have confirmed that two people are dead following an early morning shooting. Both victims were found in the area of 3600 W. and 4600 S.

Sgt. Jake Hill with the Taylorsville Police Department said officers responded to reports of shots fired around 5 a.m. Wednesday.

Officers found a woman, between 30 and 40 years old, dead on the sidewalk in front of a gas station.

Hill said police also received a call about a vehicle that had had its back window shot out. 

About 30 minutes later, while canvassing the scene, police found a dead 30-year-old about a block away from the woman’s body.

Hill also said to expect road closures in the area for the next few hours.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
