One man is dead, several others are injured after a shooting at a Salt Lake City apartment complex.

It happened just after 5:30 a.m. Friday at 1930 South West Temple.  Police say several people had gathered at an apartment at the complex around 5:37 this morning.  They say it may appear that the suspects were partying with the group before the gunshots were fired.  

Officials say it appears an argument took place. A man was shot and killed. A woman, who police say attempted to jump between the shooter and the man killed was shot in the head but only sustained a graze wound. She has been taken to the hospital. Another man on scene initially reported to have suffered minor injuries was later found to have also been grazed by a bullet to the head.

Witnesses were seen being escorted out of the apartment complex and placed into police vehicles.  One of the victims was still on scene being transported to the hospital when out crews arrived.

Police say the suspects were all wearing black and may have driven off in a white Cadillac.  At one point police say, the suspects may have been hanging out a parking lot at the back of the complex before taking off.  The suspects are still at large.

Shortly after 7:00 a.m.  a man in the white Cadillac seen leaving the scene returned.  Our crews on scene noticed the man appeared to become agitated and was placed in handcuffs and inside a Salt Lake City Police Vehicle.  

He was overheard screaming that he "had done nothing wrong," and "comes in and out all the time."  He also shouted that "he lives here," and that he "came by to check on a friend."  Police will be speaking with him to learn more about his connection, if any, to the shooting.
