Aliani Mejia-Marin Death | Obituary – Aliani Mejia-Marin age 20 has been identified as the victim in Wednesday night’s deadly shooting at a mobile home park.
Officers responded shortly after 6 p.m. to a call of shots fired at the Sandy Mobile Home Park near 200 W. Eastgate Drive. They said upon arrival, they found Mejia-Marin with a gunshot wound in the SUV and transported her to a nearby hospital, where she later died. No one else was injured in the shooting.
The altercation took place just down the street where the victim and her husband lived. Police arrested three minors who they identified as suspects in the case. Two were released, but the shooter, 14, remained in custody. Police said the shooter initially fled the scene but returned without incident.
Investigators said at this time, they are still looking into the background of all three suspects and whether this was a gang-related shooting. The relationship between the two sides is unknown, but Sgt. Clay Swensen with Sandy Police said all of them are residents at the mobile home park.
We express our sympathy and deepest condolences to Aliani Mejia-Marin’s family today and in the days, weeks, months, and years that are to come as they cope with her passing. May her soul rest in peace.
