SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Nov. 20, 2022 (Gephardt Daily) — A woman was shot and killed early Sunday morning in downtown Salt Lake City’s popular club district.

A Salt Lake City Police Department watch commander told Gephardt Daily the 2 a.m. shooting took place during an altercation near 300 S. West Temple.

The 29-year-old victim “was transported to the hospital by her friends where she was pronounced deceased.

“Homicide detectives are on scene investigating. There are currently no suspects.”

Police set up crime tape around the nearby public parking lots where the shooting was first reported.

Hours later, the SLCPD issued a statement saying the incident happened after several patrons were asked by employees to leave the club.

“While outside, the suspect got into an argument with the victim’s boyfriend. The argument escalated and resulted in the suspect pulling out a gun and shooting the victim,” the SLCPD statement says.

Anyone with any information or any witnesses are encouraged to call the police department. The number to call is 801-799-3000. The case number is 22-229528.

Gephardt Daily will update this developing story as more information becomes available.
