Deputies believe he may have been shot at least once in the stomach. It all started at 2:00 this morning at 832 E. 3900 South.

Investigators believe it was all the result of a heated argument. The 30-year-old man was rushed to St. Mark's Hospital by other people inside the club. Then, he was flown to a trauma center in Salt Lake.

Deputies took several witnesses into custody for questioning and say they've received conflicting stories about the shooting.

Lt. Jon Fassett/ Salt Lake County Sheriff's Dept.: "We're getting bits and pieces from individual witnesses and it will take some time to put all that information together to make a composite story."

Deputies believe the shooter opened fire in the club parking lot. Investigators found a half-used gun magazine from a semi-automatic 22 caliber pistol.

They also found a bullet hole in the bumper of a pick -up truck.

Sheriff's deputies aren't sure if there's more than one suspect. But they're still looking for people involved in the shooting.
