West Valley City police captured a teenage boy Thursday evening who shot his friend then ran away.
The 16-year-old boy accidently shot his 15-year-old friend in the abdomen at an apartment complex at 1917 W. Homestead Farms Lane (3650 South) about 4:13 p.m., according to West Valley City Lt. Matt Elson. The suspected shooter then got scared and fled the scene.
Police found the suspected shooter shortly before 7 p.m. at his parent's home, Elson said. He added that detectives located the boy by doing interviews and "good old fashion police work." He did not have additional information.
