SALT LAKE CITY — Police here investigated a pair of apparently unrelated shootings on Sunday and early Monday that occurred within a few blocks of each other.

Just before 1:30 a.m. Monday, a 23-year-old man told police he was sitting in his car at Jordan Park, 963 W. Fremont Ave. (near 1100 South), when another car pulled up beside him and someone from inside shot him in the chest.

The victim then drove to a 7-Eleven store at 1157 W. California Ave. before calling police, said Salt Lake police detective Mike Hamideh.

The man was taken to a local hospital in stable condition. The only description of the suspect vehicle was a rusty, red-colored 1990s four-door sedan, he said.

In a separate earlier incident, about 8:20 p.m. Sunday, an 18-year-old woman said she was in a black Hummer when another vehicle pulled up to her near 1700 South and 900 West and the passenger fired a round into her passenger door.

No one was injured. Investigators had little information about a suspect on Monday.
