COALVILLE, Utah — A Taylorsville man has been arrested in connection with a shooting that left a Sandy woman injured in Summit County early Sunday morning.

The Summit County Sheriff's Office received an anonymous tip identifying 19-year-old Victor Pulido II as the shooter.

An investigation into the shooting began after the Sheriff's Office received multiple 9-1-1 calls at 3:24 a.m. Sunday.

"One caller reported seeing 'dozens of cars' leaving a residence on Teal Drive, a neighborhood on the northside of I-80 at Kimball Junction," a Facebook post from the Sheriff's office said.

Deputies found bullet casings at the house, which they determined is an overnight rental property.

"A short time after receiving 911 calls, three vehicles that were seen at the location of the shooting were located on U.S. 40 near Silver Summit. One vehicle was stopped by an officer and information was received that there was in fact a shooting and the victim was being transported to Park City Medical Center in a separate vehicle," the post said.

According to the Sheriff's Office, a 22-year-old Sandy woman suffered a gunshot wound in her back and she was flown to a Salt Lake City-area hospital for treatment. The woman's injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

Sheriff's Office investigators detained Pulido at his home Tuesday evening and transported him to the Sheriff's Office, then to the Summit County Jail.

Pulido faces a second-degree felony charge of aggravated assault resulting in serious bodily injury, a second-degree felony charge of carrying a concealed firearm in the commission of a felony, a third-degree felony charge of discharging a firearm in the direction of a person, and three third-degree felony charges of aggravated assault.

Pulido is being held without bail.
