GRANTSVILLE, Utah (AP) — Four people were killed and one injured in a shooting Friday night in a Salt Lake City suburb, local media report.

The suspected shooter was taken into custody by Grantsville police, the Deseret News reported.

Lt. Robert Sager told FOX 13 TV that the department is treating the deaths as homicides.

“Officers were dispatched to a residence tonight in regards to a suspected homicide,” Grantsville Police Cpl. Rhonda Fields told the newspaper. “It has been determined that four are deceased, but five were actually shot.”

Police didn’t release the names of the victims or whether or not they are related to the suspected shooter, who was arrested shortly after police arrived at the home shortly after 7 p.m. Friday.

Fields said she didn’t know if any of the those killed or injured were related to each other.

Grantsville Mayor Brent Marshall and Tooele County Sheriff Paul Wimmer were on scene as police tried to piece together what happened in home.

Fields told the Deseret News that multiple agencies responded after neighbors heard gunshots.
