MILLCREEK, Utah – Unified Police have arrested a man they said shot and critically injured a 15-year-old in Millcreek Saturday.

Police say four Hispanic men, between 15 and 20 years old, were walking along 300 E. at 4100 S. when one of them turned around and shot at three African American men walking behind them.

A 15-year-old boy was hit and taken to the hospital in critical condition.

Investigators have been searching for the suspects since then and have identified two of the men involved.

Police said they tracked those men to a home near 37th W. and Bawden Ave. in West Valley City.

Lt. Justin Hoyal said the SWAT team went in found the man believed to be the shooter and one other suspect as well.

Officials arrested 20-year-old Anthony Peneger on homicide charges.

The other suspect is only 15 and is in custody at the juvenile detention center.

Detectives said two more suspects who are between 16 and 20 are still at large.

Unified police said they would like to speak with anyone who might have information.
