Two men were shot at a party early Sunday in Salt Lake City.

The men were with a large group near 300 South and 1000 West about 2 a.m. when gunfire broke out, said Salt Lake City police Lt. Josh Scharman. The injured men, ages 28 and 33, were expected to recover, Scharman said.

"We're not sure what led to the confrontation," he said.

One man, possibly involved in the shooting, was seen running near a garage at the rear of the property where the party was being held, Scharman said.

Detectives are "making some progress" in identifying suspects, Scharman said.

"Obviously there are a lot of interviews. There are a lot of witnesses," Scharman said.

Multiple shell casings were found at the scene, Scharman said.

Another person, 23, was hit by a car at some point during the party, Scharman said. It is not clear whether the man was hit in the confusion that followed the shooting; he also was expected to survive.
