SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Salt Lake City police are trying to figure out if a weekend shooting was gang related.

Police Lt. John Scharman says officers responded to a report of shots fired about 3:30 p.m. Saturday in the area of 1250 West and 1600 South.

By the time police arrived, the suspected shooters were gone.

Scharman says there were several witnesses, but they have not been cooperating with detectives in the gang unit.

He says a 17-year-old who appeared to be a victim was driven to his house by friends and then to a local hospital.

But he told KSL-TV (http://tinyurl.com/k62dpqw) Sunday it's still not clear whether the teen's injury was caused by a gunshot. It was not considered life-threatening.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 801-799-3000.
