SANDY, Utah, March 13, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Officials have identified a woman who died after a shooting late Tuesday night in Sandy, as well as a man who remains in critical condition.

The deceased woman has been identified as Maureen Fiore, 36, the Sandy Police Department tweeted Wednesday afternoon. The man in critical condition has been identified as Jeffrey Webster, 38. The two were husband and wife, officials said.

Fiore was initially transported to a local hospital by ground ambulance and subsequently died of her injuries, according to a tweet from Sandy Police issued shortly before 2 a.m. Wednesday.

Police from multiple departments responded to the scene of the shooting after Sandy police were initially dispatched on call of a burglary alarm at a home near 900 East and 11190 South, Sandy Police Sgt. Jason Nielsen told Gephardt Daily.

The initial call came in at about 10 p.m.

Scanner traffic indicated that, upon arrival, officers found a 36-year-old woman who had been shot in the chest and a 38-year-old man who was shot in the buttock.

It appeared that the weapon used was a shotgun, according to conversation on the scanner.

Officers from Draper, Murray, Salt Lake, and Cottonwood Heights police departments were assisting Sandy police, and a containment area was established, with canines brought in to help in the search for the suspect or suspects.

Sandy Police tweeted Wednesday morning: “We are actively investigating the shooting from last night. We are following up on leads, however we do not have a suspect in custody.”

It’s not clear at this early stage whether the suspect or suspects were known to the victims.

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