A fifth person also was shot and is in the hospital. The suspected shooter is in custody.
Investigators are confident there was only one shooter and there is no further danger to the community, said Cpl. Rhonda Fields with the Grantsville Police Department.
Fields could not immediately release the ages or names of the victims or suspect. She would not say whether any of the people involved were related to each other. Fields says they are still working to notify the family members of the victims.
Utah Gov. Gary Herbert tweeted his condolences to the victims’ families. “Our hearts are broken by the horrible news coming out of Grantsville tonight,” he said. “We mourn over the loss of innocent lives.”
Grantsville, a town of about 11,000 people, is about 35 miles southwest of Salt Lake City in Tooele County.
