KEARNS – Less than four hours after an argument turned to gun violence, the alleged getaway car was located by police just a few blocks away.

“I pulled in my driveway, and the cop says back up,” said a startled Talon Kohutek.

A silver 2004 Chrysler Sebring matching the description of a car that was seen fleeing the scene of the shooting was sitting in front of Kohutek’s home.

“I tried asking some questions and the cop told me back up and get the heck out of here,” he added.

“When we arrived, we found a 29-year-old male with two gun shot wounds,” said Brian Lohrke with Unified Police. “The suspect and the victim lived together, and an argument ensued where the suspect pulled out a gun and began to fire at the victim.”

Police say the victim is in critical condition, and the search for the suspect continues. However, detectives say they have a good idea who he might be.
