SOUTH SALT LAKE — The Salt Lake City Police Department tweeted that an officer-involved shooting has left one man dead.

The shooting took place at about 7:15 p.m. Monday in the parking lot of a 7-Eleven located at 2102 S. State, according to the tweet.

Police responded to a 911 call about a man "waving a gun around," according to Sgt. Darin Sweeten from the South Salt Lake Police Department. When officers arrived, they saw three men exiting the 7-Eleven, and one of the men matched the description of the man described in the 911 call, police said.

When officers confronted the man, he was "visibly upset" and became agitated, Sweeten said.

Witnesses said they heard two shots, but their accounts vary beyond that.

Police have not yet identified the man nor did they release any further information about the incident Monday night.

The two men who were with the man who was shot are being questioned by police but have not been arrested.

South Salt Lake police are investigating the incident.

More information will be posted when it is available.
