Detectives asked community members who live or work within the area between 100 South to 400 South and 500 East to 700 East to review home or business security cameras between 1:15 a.m. and 2 a.m. on Friday. Detectives are interested in reviewing any footage that may show a group of people walking together or any vehicles coming or leaving the area at a high rate of speed.
Based on their investigation, detectives believe the victim got into an argument with the suspect, or suspects, and someone shot the victim as he stood near the southwest corner of 600 East and 200 South.
The suspect, or suspects, then got into a car and left the area.
600 East will be closed between 200 South and 300 South through at least 7 a.m. Friday. Eastbound traffic on 200 South has reopened.
