LOGAN, Utah -- A man is cooperating with police after he shot and killed another man at an apartment in Logan Friday morning, and police say both men have children with the same woman.

According to a press release from the Logan Police Department, officers responded around 6:30 a.m. to an apartment near 200 Riverbend Road.

Those officers found two women performing CPR on a 23-year-old man, who had been shot. Paramedics took over life-saving efforts, but the man was ultimately pronounced dead at the scene.

Capt. Tyson Budge, Logan Police, said the deceased does not live at the apartment and showed up there Friday morning. While the details about what transpired are not clear, that man was ultimately shot by a 26-year-old man who lives at the residence.

Budge said both men had been involved in a relationship with a woman staying at the apartment. The man who was shot is the father of two of her four children while the man who pulled the trigger is the father to another.

The four children, all under the age of 7, were staying in the apartment along with their mother, a 28-year-old woman, and their grandmother, 53, who owns the residence.

It was not immediately clear if the children witnessed the shooting. Budge said the women may have taken the children outside.

Budge said the 26-year-old man who shot the deceased has been cooperating with police. The weapon in question was a 9 mm handgun.

The children living in the residence are in the care of another relative.

"The incident at Riverbend Road is still being investigated. There are many aspects of this investigation that will take some time to sort through. The State Medical Examiner’s office will also do their investigation and share their findings early next week. We know who all the involved parties are and will now put together the evidence. After a thorough investigation we will present the information to the County Attorney’s office for a decision on any criminal charges or justifiable homicide," a Facebook post from Logan Police said.

The identities of the parties involved have not been released.
