KEARNS, Utah, Sept. 19, 2017 (Gephardt Daily) — Two people are dead and two others hospitalized after a shooting and crash Tuesday night in Kearns.
According to witnesses, a blue pickup truck with two people inside opened fire at a pedestrian walking near 5400 South and 5280 West about 7:30 p.m.
The truck was speeding away when it struck a white passenger vehicle and then flipped and rolled into the yard of a nearby home.
When Unified Police officers arrived they found two people dead inside the white passenger car and a seriously injured 19-year-old male inside the blue pickup.

A second person was seen fleeing the truck prompting police to conduct a search of the neighborhood.
The chain of events leading up to the shooting and crash are unclear, although police believe it was gang-related.
