SALT LAKE CITY — Police are investigating a road rage incident involving two cars that led to a shooting late Sunday night in Salt Lake City.

This all happened just before midnight in the area of State Route 201 and 3800 West.

The Utah Highway Patrol said one car sideswiped another car, and the driver of the sideswiped car fired at least six shots, hitting the other car six times.

A man and a woman, as well as a baby girl, were in the car that was shot at, but no one was hit by any of the bullets.

The man was hit by shrapnel but suffered only minor injuries and was not taken to a hospital.

Police are looking for the driver of a late 1990s Jeep Grand Cherokee, silver or white, with damage on the driver’s side.

Meanwhile, the Utah Highway Patrol is still looking for the person who shot at five random vehicles on I-15 in Juab County last week.

Two people were hurt in that case.

The vehicle in that incident is described as an older model light-colored or white SUV, possibly a Jeep Cherokee.

Investigators have not said whether these two cases are related.
