MIDVALE — Police have identified the woman killed in a Midvale shooting last Friday.

Unified police on Monday identified the woman as Teresa Marie Alires, 39, from Salt Lake City.

On Friday around 5:30 p.m. police received calls about an assault with a weapon, according to Unified Police Sgt. Melody Cutler. When officers arrived they found Alires dead near the Hilton Hotel. Officers were told that a man had also been shot. The man ran to WinCo, across the street from the Tru by Hilton Hotel, where grocery store employees began treating his injuries.

The man was transported in serious condition to Intermountain Medical Center in Murray. He has been since released from the hospital to Utah Adult Probation and Parole on a parole violation. Unified police did not identify the man.

No one has been arrested in connection with the shooting. On Friday, police were looking for a white Cadillac, around 2005, that was seen driving away around the time of the shooting.

Anyone who has information about what happened, or to report sightings of the vehicle or persons of interest, is encouraged to call 801-743-7000.
