WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah — A woman was arrested Saturday night after police found one man shot and another stabbed in West Valley City.

Police responded to a call of two men being wounded in the area of 4440 W. Trinity Avenue around 9:00 p.m.

One victim, a 48-year-old man, was found lying in front of the home with a gunshot wound. The other, a 32-year-old man, was in the kitchen with stab wounds. They were both transported to an area hospital in critical condition. In an update provided Monday, both men were still listed as critical but stable.
