Officers Search for Shooting Suspect

Salt Lake County Sheriff's authorities say two men -- both in their 20's -- got into an argument early this morning. The suspect pulled out a gun and started running away, and the other man chased him.

Lt. Chris Bertram/Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office: "The suspect was running eastbound up the street and was discharging the firearm underhanded as he ran away from the actual victim."

The suspect fired at least three rounds from a nine millimeter handgun. Two of the bullets shot into the ground, and one hit the other man in the leg.

The victim is expected to be okay.
