NORTH SALT LAKE—Residents at Eaglewood Lofts were awakened by gunfire early Sunday morning when two groups of people started shooting at each other in the lawn area in between the buildings.
“We got a call at 5:45 a.m. reporting shots fired at an apartment complex at 325 S. Orchard Drive,” said North Salt Lake Assistant Police Chief Mitch Gwilliam. “Investigators found multiple juveniles and young adults shooting at each other.”
Four vehicles were hit and there were eight impacts to glass, he said. “We arrested one adult male and two juveniles. We’re actively looking for other individuals, at least one for sure.”
There were no injuries, said Gwilliam. “A shot went through an outer pane of glass on a double pane window and through a wall into an apartment.”
Gwilliam said they don’t have any information that gangs were involved in the shooting.
Joe Hernandez, 19, was arrested and booked into the Davis County Jail on charges of reckless endangerment, discharge of a firearm and possession of a firearm.
“There were more than 50 rounds fired,” said Gwilliam. “It was a substantial amount of rounds with not regard for citizens or people in the area.”
