A home invasion turned shootout in a Salt Lake City apartment last Wednesday left one suspect wounded and a next door neighbor a bit shaky after he was almost hit during the exchange.
Around 3:20 in the afternoon, according to KSL news, a man, a woman and a child were inside the apartment when there was a knock on the door. The man responded and, as Salt Lake City Police Lt. Bryce Johnson described the scene, “It was a person that this family knew. They started to let them in the door. As the person came in, there were three people waiting. They kind of pushed past and displayed some handguns.”
And that’s when things escalated. The homeowner had a gun of his own, so he opened fire on the intruders and the men wisely fled, but not before one of them caught a bullet.
