WASHINGTON (AA) – A mass shooting in the US state of Utah has left eight people dead, including five minors, police said Wednesday.

According to a press release, police officers from the Enoch City Police Department checked the residence and found three adults and five minors dead.

Each victim appeared to have sustained gunshot wounds, said the statement.
