SOUTH SALT LAKE, Utah — South Salt Lake Police are investigating a homicide that occurred early Saturday morning.

According to a Facebook Live post by the department's official page, SSLPD officers were dispatched to Southern X-posure Show Club at 3420 S. State Street around 12:10 a.m. to a report of shots fired. A man in his mid-20s was found wounded and was transported to an area hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. Officials did not confirm exactly where the shots were fired or any other details on what happened.

A male suspect fled the area, and police initially said information about him was limited. They later released a photo, appearing to be from surveillance footage at a convenience store, of a "person of interest" in the homicide. He is described as a man in his mid-20s, approximately six feet tall, and with short hair.

The department also released a photo of the vehicle they believe possibly fled the crime scene. It's a gold 2007 BMW SUV with Utah license plate U82 2UE. Police say it is registered to an address in Murray, but did not release the name of the SUV's owner or the person of interest.
