Salt Lake City, Utah — A young man is taken into custody for the fatal shooting after a Halloween party in a downtown warehouse.
A 20-year-old, Roy Anthony Duran, was arrested on murder and related charges connected with the shooting.
Salt Lake City police officers responded to a shooting at 500 West 600 South in downtown Salt Lake City early Sunday morning, and found Isaiah Valerio, age 21, with a single gunshot wound to his head.
Medical aid given by officers and fire department officials was unsuccessful, and Valerio died at the scene.
According to several witnesses, Duran was identified as the shooter and said that he was involved in arguments with party-goers before running away after hearing sirens.
He returned to the warehouse and punched Valerio, causing several others to join the fight, but they ran after he pulled a firearm from his waistband.
According to witnesses, Duran shot Valerio in the head at close range.
Duran, a convicted felon, is now in custody after turning himself into police.
