SALT LAKE CITY — A man who was in critical condition after he and his brother's fiancee were shot in San Diego has died, police said.

Salvatore Belvedere, 22, was in extremely critical condition after he and Ilona Gregorievna Flint, 22, were shot on Christmas Eve outside a San Diego Mall.

Belvedere died from complications, according to police. Flint was pronounced dead Christmas Eve.

Police said Flint called 911 before she died. She told dispatchers that she didn't know exactly where she was, according to police.

Both victims in a car with Utah license plates, and both were shot in the head, police said. The two were found outside a Macy's store that was staying open until 2 a.m. for Christmas shoppers.

San Diego police said the shooting did not involve a robbery and they're still looking for a motive.

Flint was engaged to Gianni Belvedere, Salvatore's brother, but police have so far been unable to locate Gianni who was with the victims earlier in the day.

The Belvederes and Flint all attended the Walden School of Liberal Arts in Provo and all still have ties in Utah.
