WEST VALLEY CITY — Police on Wednesday were trying to sort out the details of an overnight shooting.

Just before 3:30 a.m. Tuesday, officers were called to an area hospital where a man who had been shot in the shoulder was being treated, said West Valley police spokeswoman Roxeanne Vainuku. Friends had taken the man to the hospital, she said.

The man told detectives he was shot while sitting in a vehicle near 1315 West and 4100 South by someone he doesn't know, Vainuku said.

"Investigators have been canvassing the area for evidence and conducting interviews with witnesses," she said.

The man, whose age was not released, was treated and released from the hospital. There has been no evidence to indicate whether the shooting was gang- or drug-related, Vainuku said.

Additional information will be posted as it becomes available.
