MILLCREEK — A 21-year-old man died overnight Sunday after he was shot in front of a car wash, police said.

The shooting occurred about 12:30 a.m. at 635 W. 3900 South. Police responded after a person called 911 reporting a gunshot victim, said Unified police detective Kevin Mallory.

“It’s a road that’s somewhat reasonably traveled at midnight, so as far as we know it’s just a witness that happened to drive by and see him,” Mallory said.

The man was taken to a hospital where he died. His name was not immediately released.

There were no known witnesses to the shooting, Mallory said.

Police were investigating the scene Sunday. More information will be posted as it becomes available.
