SALT LAKE CITY — A man was injured after a shot was fired in Salt Lake City early Thursday morning, but the man is refusing to tell police who pulled the trigger.

Salt Lake City Police Department personnel responded to the area of 300 East and Coatsville Avenue around 12:30 a.m.

The 30-year-old man told police he had been arguing with a friend over money, and he said that friend pulled out a gun and fired.

“He may have shot towards the ground, it ricocheted and then hit him in the foot, “ said Det. Veronica Montoya of the Salt Lake City Police Department. “[He had] very minor injuries.”

Police are working to determine who shot the man, but the victim is refusing to tell them the man’s name.
