Police in suburban Salt Lake City have arrested a suspect in the fatal shooting of man and woman in West Valley City.

Police say the two victims lived in a shed in West Valley City on the same property as the man accused of killing them owns a home.

West Valley police say they responded to reports of gunfire at his house at about 7:15 p.m. Tuesday.

Investigators say the three of them apparently were arguing before the shots were fired.

They say the suspect ran across the street to another family member's house, where his relatives took the gun away from him.

Police surrounded that house and talked him into coming outside, where he was taken into custody.

No names have been released.
