DRAPER, Utah, Oct. 28, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — A suspect is in custody after a shooting in Draper Thursday morning.

At 11:33 a.m., Draper Police received a call of a man and woman arguing in the parking lot of the Hampton Inn at 13711 S. 200 West, said a statement.

“Video shows the couple leaving the hotel,” the statement said. “The woman was carrying a baby in a car seat and had a young boy with her. During the argument, the man pulled out a handgun and fired a shot toward the woman. Evidence on the scene indicates the woman was likely struck by the bullet.
