TAYLORSVILLE — A man suffered critical injuries after police say he was shot through the wall of an apartment early Friday morning.

The shooting took place about 12:22 a.m. at the Callaway Apartments at 1141 W. 3900 South (Meadowbrook Expressway), according to Unified Police Sgt. Melody Gray.

Multiple rifle rounds were fired from outside the apartment through the wall of the unit, and the man, who was in the bedroom, was hit multiple times, Gray said.

He was taken to Intermountain Medical Center in critical condition, she added. A woman who was also in the apartment twisted her ankle but was otherwise uninjured, Gray said. Neither person was identified.

Police had not located anyone else in connection with the shooting and had very little information, Gray said. Detectives were not able to talk with the victim Friday morning because he was going into surgery.

Witnesses reported seeing a black sedan leave the scene, but it was not clear if the car was involved in the shooting, she said.

Police from South Salt Lake and West Valley City assisted Unified police with a search of the area, but were unable to find anyone, Gray added.

No other details about the shooting were immediately available. Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact Unified police at 801-743-7000.
