Two men were in custody Tuesday after gunfire broke out from a vehicle in a Salt Lake City neighborhood. An off-duty gang detective was coaching a football game when he heard multiple shots near 1250 South and 800 West, said Salt Lake City police Lt. Melody Gray. Witnesses said two men in a vehicle opened fire on two other vehicles about 7:45 p.m. All three vehicles left the area; the suspected shooters’ car was stopped on Interstate 15 near 1500 South, and the occupants fled on foot, Gray said. One man was caught by a police dog, and the other was found hiding in a canal nearby, Gray said. As of 9 p.m., no one was reported injured in the shooting, Gray said.
