SALT LAKE CITY — A man was taken to a hospital in serious but stable condition after a shooting in Sugar House early Sunday morning, and police are seeking a suspect.

Police said the shooting occurred around 1 a.m. in a parking lot near a dance club called Karamba, located at 1051 E. 2100 South.

The man suffered a bullet wound to his upper torso and was taken to a hospital in serious but stable condition.

Police said they don’t believe this was a random attack, and investigators said they have been interviewing witnesses who may have seen the shooting. They said there were so many witnesses present that it actually almost made it difficult to investigate the crime.

“The club was turning out at that time, so we actually had almost enough people that it hindered our ability to gather information,” said Lt. Craig Gleason of the Salt Lake City Police Department. “We have some people who were witnesses of some type or another, and we’re interviewing them to get the best information we can.”

Anyone with information about the shooting or the suspect is asked to call police.
