Two students were leaving Union Middle School's grounds when an argument ensued, which led to the shooting, according to the Sandy Police Department. The victim was taken to a local hospital after sustaining two gunshot wounds, police said.

It was not clear which school the victim attended.

The shooting occurred outside of school and involved students, although it's unclear if they were students at that school, according to the Canyons School District.
