Police identified the 16-year-old boy who was killed in an early Tuesday drive-by shooting in west Salt Lake City as Paris Gustin.

Gustin was traveling with two other teenage males near 600 North and 1000 West when gunshots were fired into their car from another vehicle, said SLCPD Detective Richard Chipping.

The suspects fled while those in the car with Gustin ended up at 985 S. 1000 West and called friends, who reported the incident to police, Chipping said.

Gustin died from at least one gunshot wound at 4:15 a.m. The shooting is under investigation.

Family members set up a GoFundMe account to cover funeral costs, calling Gustin "an amazing young man with an infectious, beautiful smile."
