WEST VALLEY CITY — West Valley police believe at least one person was shot during a confrontation between two groups in a grocery store parking lot Sunday night.

But as of Monday, detectives have been unable to find a victim.

About 10:50 p.m. Sunday, multiple shots were heard near Anaya's Market, 4122 S. 4000 West. By the time officers arrived, everyone involved in the incident had fled, said West Valley police spokeswoman Roxeanne Vainuku.

Multiple shell casings were found at the scene as well as a shoe and drops of blood on the pavement, she said. But as of mid-morning Monday, no hospitals in the area had reported receiving a gunshot victim for treatment. Police believe, based on surveillance video, that the confrontation involved at least two people who drove into the parking lot in an SUV and at least two people who were standing in the parking lot. A person inside the SUV is believed to have been shot.

The store was closed at the time of the shooting. Stray bullets also hit the exterior of a nearby apartment building, according to police, but no additional injuries were reported.
