SALT LAKE CITY - One man is dead and two others are injured after a shooting at a Salt Lake City apartment early Friday morning, and another man is facing charges that include aggravated murder.

According to authorities, an argument led to the shooting at an apartment near 1940 S. West Temple at about 5:30 a.m.

"[There were] a lot of witnesses, a lot of people yelling. Three victims, so it was pretty chaotic," said Lt. Mike Ross, Salt Lake City Police Department. "We're gonna interview every person in this complex behind me, so it's gonna take some time. [Because] we're hoping somebody saw something that could give us a little more information."

Officers said a 51-year-old man was shot and killed, and a man and a woman, both age 35, also suffered gunshot wounds.

Police say Olson suffered injuries while fighting with the victims.

The woman was shot in the head but is expected to recover. The 35-year-old man who was shot is in unknown condition.

Police said a man driving a white Cadillac arrived at the scene about 90 minutes after the incident, and he may be related to one of the victims. Police detained that man and later handcuffed him for allegedly engaging officers in a verbal altercation.  The Cadillac driver and a female passenger were then taken to Salt Lake City police headquarters for questioning.
