It all started with a mouse. It ended with the rodent dodging a bullet, a house mate not and another man arrested for sexual abuse of a young teenage girl.
Taylorsville police said 34-year-old Paul Daniel Kunzler remained in the Salt Lake County Jail on Wednesday, held without bail on suspicion of multiple counts of rape, sodomy and aggravated sexual abuse of a 13-year-old girl.
Taylorsville police Officer Troy Martinez reports it all began about 2 a.m. Tuesday when he and other officers were called to a home near 2600 West and 5450 South to investigate an accidental shooting. They found that a 28-year-old man, while in the bathroom, had been struck in the chest by a bullet. The gunshot had been fired by a 27-year-old house mate who allegedly shot at and missed the mouse, with the errant 9mm slug going through the wall.
