SALT LAKE CITY — Police were investigating the apparent shooting deaths of two people in a Poplar Grove neighborhood Monday.

Officers responded to a call of shots fired near 1670 W. 330 South shortly after 1 p.m. They arrived to find a man lying dead in the street and the body of a deceased woman in a car parked in a driveway just a few feet away.

"I heard like four or five shots. It kind of sounded like firecrackers," said 12-year-old Abraham Gucin, who lives in the neighborhood.

Witnesses saw police escort two children from the scene.

Few details were released about either victim or what possibly happened, but Salt Lake police indicated that they were not looking for any additional gunmen.
