Three Dead in Midvale Shooting

Feb 12, 2013

  Unified Police officers found three people dead this morning at a home in Midvale.  Lieutenant Justin Hoyal says they’d been shot.  One woman who survived was taken to a hospital in critical condition.  Hoyal says they weren’t sure initially whether there was a danger to the neighborhood.

“Early on in this situation, before we had any information," Hoyal tells KUER, "we didn’t know if the suspect was out on foot in the area, we put our local schools on lockdown and we sent officers over there to help with security.”

Police have been looking for a 25-year-old man named David Fresques.  His car turned up at the Motel 6 next to I-15 at 7200 South.  A SWAT team went through the motel, but didn’t find him.

The names of the victims have not been released.  Hoyal says officers went to the home at 8286 Adams Street about a month ago to serve a search warrant in a drug case.
