WEST VALLEY CITY — Police are looking for two men who opened fire as they allegedly shoplifted from a K-Mart Friday afternoon.

Police say the two men took out hand guns and fired two or three shots into the ceiling when a loss prevention employee tried to stop them from leaving the store, 1770 W. 4100 South, about 4:30 p.m.

The men then ran to silver or gray Toyota, possibly a Camry or Corolla, with a white license plate, and fled west on 4100 South. One man fired an additional shot as they left the parking lot.

The men are described as hispanic, between 25 and 35 years old, of medium height and build. One man was wearing a grey shirt and jeans while the other was wearing a blue shirt and jeans.

Anyone with information is asked to call West Valley City Police at 801-840-4000.
