WHITE CITY, Utah, Aug. 11, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) — Two young men were transported to a local hospital after being injured in an early morning drive-by shooting in White City, a small township surrounded on all sides by the city of Sandy.

The victims, both 19, had returned from an errand and were walking up the driveway of a residence at 10150 S. Amaryllis St. just before 1 a.m. Tuesday. A car pulled up and fired 15 rounds, Detective Kevin Mallory, UPD, told Gephardt Daily.

The victims, who were shot in the legs, are said to be in stable condition, officials said. Three cars in front of the residence were hit by multiple bullets. At least one bullet entered the residence, where one or more children were present.

Mallory said it is unknown if the shooting was gang related, but gang investigators were brought in due to the nature of the crime.

The shooter is believed to have been in a small four-door car, gray or silver in color. Anyone with information is asked to call Unified Police officials at 801-743-7000.
