SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake City police are investigating what they are calling a homicide on Thursday night. Lt. Jenn Dederich says the call came in about 4:51 pm of a woman bleeding from the head near the area of 51 North 800 West.

She was transported to the hospital and a short time later pronounced dead.  Dederich says investigators believe there were two witnesses and one suspect, but that suspect was not immediately apprehended.


“We have suspects of interest, however, we do not have a suspect in custody currently.  The female victim was talking with three males at the scene before a gunshot was heard.  She was found with a gunshot wound to the head,” says Dederich.

She says the 30-year-old victim is identified but her name is not immediately being released pending notification of next of kin.  Dederich says even though the suspect was at large late Thursday night, she does not believe anyone in the neighborhood was in any danger.
