A man wanted in connection with a weekend shooting that left another man in extremely critical condition has been arrested.
Anthony Longsoldier, 27, was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail Monday for investigation of attempted homicide.
Just after 3 a.m. Saturday, a 24-year-old man was shot multiple times while standing in a driveway near 500 East and 700 South.
Even after the man was shot in the neck and was on the ground bleeding severely, Longsoldier went up to the victim and punched him in the head and face, according to Salt Lake County Jail documents.
Investigators said that although the men involved might have gang affiliations, the motive for the shooting was not gang-related, but rather a "personal issue between the two parties," said Salt Lake Police Sgt. Fred Ross.
The name of the victim had not been released as of this afternoon. Salt Lake Police detective Jeff Bedard said the man was still extremely critical.
Longsoldier was also picked up on a parole violation. A check of state court records shows Longsoldier has a long criminal history in Utah. Some of his prior charges include assault by a prisoner, simple assault, drug distribution and assault with substantial bodily injury.
