ST. GEORGE – Police are currently investigating a gunfire incident that sent a man to the hospital Sunday night.
Police responded to the report of gunfire at 2031 E Colorado Drive in St. George around 9 p.m., Sunday. Two subjects went to the address and a confrontation occurred between the resident and subjects. At some point the resident produced a firearm and shot one of the subjects in the arm.
That subject was transported to Intermountain Healthcare Southwest Region at Dixie Regional Medical Center where the injuries were determined to be non-life threatening.
Though gunfire was involved, Officer Derek Lewis, St. George Police Department public information officer, said such incidents aren’t overly common for St. George.
“We get them occasionally,” he said, “maybe once a year.”
The investigation into the incident is ongoing. Once completed, details will be forwarded to the Washington County Attorney’s Office to be screened for criminal charges.
