Police are untangling the circumstances surrounding the fatal shooting of a woman Saturday morning in Salt Lake City.

Officers found the injured woman — who police have not yet publicly identified — when they arrived at the scene of a reported burglary around 7:40 a.m. near 1200 N. Redwood Rd., Sgt. Brandon Shearer said.

Medics tried to help the woman. She was soon taken by ambulance to the hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.

Shearer said investigators don’t know how or if the woman was related to the burglary, and police haven’t released a description of the shooter, who is still at large.
