SALT LAKE CITY — Investigators are on the scene of a shooting at the Wasatch Inn on State Street in Salt Lake City.

Salt Lake City Police said two men were arguing in the parking lot of the hotel at 1416 State Street, when one shot the other and left on foot. Police said the suspect was last seen heading south on State Street.

“Our officers arrived, and they located a man with a gunshot wound to his head,” SLCPD Detective Michelle Peterson told KSL. “He is in critical condition.”

The victim was hospitalized according to police.  They believe this is an isolated incident, but homicide investigators were on the scene out of an abundance of caution.

Police later said the shooting did not appear to be random. 

The suspect is described as an approximately 60-year-old Hispanic man, balding with no facial hair. He was last seen wearing a green puffy jacket, red and black sweatpants, and white shoes.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call 801-799-3000 and reference case number 22-201391.
