Two shots were fired, but only one hit the victim.Smith was taken to University Hospital, where she was in critical condition Friday in the hospital's intensive-care unit, a spokesman said.

Officers recovered a pistol believed to have been used in the shooting. The woman's 45-year-old boyfriend was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail for investigation of attempted criminal homicide.
