Just after 10 p.m., two 18-year-old men and two 17-year-old boys forced their way into a house at 245 N. Rendon Court (635 West), said Salt Lake police detective Greg Wilking. Investigators believe the group was attempting to take something, but Wilking did not know what or if anything was stolen from the house.
After the four males ran from the house, they got into a car to drive away. But one of the occupants of the house chased after them and fired several shots at the car as it was driving away, the detective said.

The driver, Abubakar Mohammad, 18, was struck and killed, causing the car to crash near 200 North and 600 West, Wilking said. The other three occupants got out and ran. Police were able to track down the group.
Jordan Ismyale-Lucas Audinette, 18, was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail for investigation of aggravated burglary. Two 17-year olds were booked into Salt Lake Juvenile Detention for investigation of the same charge.
Detectives were still trying to determine Wednesday afternoon who in the house was the gunman. Wilking said the occupants were not being cooperative with police.
He said it is not legal for a person to shoot at a person who is running or driving away from an incident if they are not posing an immediate threat.
The health department granted the 22 variances for the 2019 season and expects more establishments to apply in the weeks to come.
The variance only applies to dogs and does not affect qualifying ADA service dogs in any way. At this time last year, only 14 restaurants got the dog patio license.
The variances are good for one summer dining season. Businesses that remain in good standing may renew next year for a reduced $110 fee. Restaurants can apply for a dog patio permit, call the Food Protection Bureau at 385-468-3845
