Partygoers beat the crap out of man who shot girlfriend during Utah domestic dispute

Published

Police found a shooting suspect beaten unconscious after a woman was wounded at a Utah house party.

The woman, who is in her 30s, went to a hospital for treatment of two gunshot wounds about 5 a.m. Sunday, but police doubted her claims that she accidentally shot herself while cleaning the weapon, reported the Gephardt Daily.

Officers went to the woman’s Herriman home to investigate, and they found several people there — including a man who had been knocked unconscious during a fight.

Emergency medical crews revived the man, who police said did not suffer severe injuries.

Witnesses said the man had gotten upset with his girlfriend during an all-night party, and the couple argued loudly for house, reported KTVX-TV.

The man eventually pulled out a gun and told everyone else to leave the house, and witnesses said they heard gunshots as they were walking to their vehicles.

Police said they suspect the woman tried to grab the gun, which may have accidentally fired during the struggle.

Investigators believe a single bullet struck the woman in her hand and then her ankle.

She is expected to recover, although police said she may need surgery on her hand.

Partygoers returned to the house and physically attacked the man, whose name has not been released.

No charges have been filed in the shooting or the beating, which both remain under investigation.

Bush and ex-Vice President Dick Cheney -- laid out a simple way to force an impeachment vote that would be conducted in secret, freeing GOP senators to turn on the president without fear of repercussions.

Send in the clowns: Impeachment is serious stuff, but the GOP wants a circus

The impeachment of Donald Trump is not just a matter of holding the president accountable for his confessed plot to extort Ukraine at a time when Russia is engaged in both an invasion of that country and a cyber-invasion of the United States. This impeachment is also a mandatory warning to myriad potential Trump copycats that serving as a carrier of the political disease known as Trumpism is absolutely not a path to more winning, but a political death wish.

Trump goes on wild Biden conspiracy tweetstorm as public impeachment hearings threaten to expose his presidency

President Donald Trump started firing off misleading tweets before sunrise to defend himself from the impeachment inquiry.

The president started tweeting a bit earlier than usual, at 6:25 a.m. EST, complaining about the public phase of the inquiry, which begins Wednesday with testimony from George Kent, a deputy assistant secretary of state, and Bill Taylor, a former ambassador and the top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine.

Marie Yovanovitch, former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, will testify Friday.

"Why is such a focus put on 2nd and 3rd hand witnesses, many of whom are Never Trumpers, or whose lawyers are Never Trumpers, when all you have to do is read the phone call (transcript) with the Ukrainian President and see first hand?" Trump tweeted.
