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.

At a barbecue with burgers, hot dogs, and ice cream sandwiches, attendees that included firefighters and iron workers gathered for what was advertised as a precinct captain training — or to simply hear Biden's pitch. Indeed, many attendees of the barbecue were still undecided a mere day before caucusing.

According to a report from the New York Times, members of the National Security Council under Donald Trump no longer uses their extensive knowledge of international relations, politics, and history to formulate foreign policy security proposals for the president's review -- and are instead using the president's tweets to make policy based upon his desires and social media proclamations.

The report begins with noting that council members are often handed printouts of the president's tweets when they convene and are expected to use his words as their guide to formulate proposals that will likely find favor with the president.
