SANDY, Utah, Sept. 14, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — Two people are dead after a shooting in Sandy Tuesday night.

The incident occurred in the area of 9040 S. Club Oaks Drive (700 West) at approximately 10:20 p.m.

Sandy Police Department Sgt. Clayton Swensen told Gephardt Daily officers responded on a call of a shooting, and found two deceased males when they arrived. The ages and identities of the two men and their relationship to each other is not clear at this time; officials are also not saying at this stage whether the two men were residents of the home in Club Oaks Drive at which the incident occurred.

“Our investigators are on scene right now trying to determine what led up to that shooting, and how that shooting played out,” Swensen said. “Until they get in there and start collecting evidence and speaking to witnesses, we have very limited information right now.”

Witnesses are being cooperative, he said.

Officers performed life-saving efforts on the two men, but then medical personnel arrived on scene and declared the two men deceased.

No information about the suspect or suspects was immediately available; Swensen said there is no threat to the public at this time.

Gephardt Daily will have more on this developing story as information is made available.
