A Salt Lake County man has been booked into the county jail for investigation of attempted homicide following a Saturday afternoon shooting incident.
LeRoy I. Whittle was arrested at his home, 7622 S. 10th East, after sheriff deputies responded to reports of gunfire in the area.According to a sheriff's report, deputies found Jack Engberg, 28, in a orchard area behind the house with gunshot wounds to his wrists and one leg. Engberg was listed in serious condition at LDS Hospital Sunday.
The report said Whittle was found standing in the garage of the house. Whittle had apparently tried to apply a tourniquet to Engberg's leg.
The report said the incident was apparently a continuation of an earlier disturbance at the home which involved Engberg and his ex-wife, who is Whittle's daughter.
