ROY, Utah — Roy City Police are investigating a shooting that happened early Wednesday morning.

They were dispatched to a report of a gunshot near Roy High School around 4:40 a.m. at an apartment complex at 1958 West 4700 South.

“We just got a call that there was pounding on the door and then apparently the door was possibly forced open and the gunshots followed," said Roy Police PIO Stuart Hackworth.

Officers located a male that had been shot in the abdomen in his apartment. The victim is undergoing emergency surgery, but his wounds are not believed to be life-threatening.

Police are looking for other people who left the apartment before officers arrived.

“At least three suspects that arrived possibly in two separate vehicles, one possibly a silver SUV the other a sedan," Officer Hackworth said. "The victim has not been able to provide a lot of information about what took place.”

Police do not believe there is any immediate danger to the public.

If you have any information or surveillance video of the area, you're asked to call the Roy dispatch line at 801-629-8221.
