Officials said a teen would likely not be charged after firing into his vehicle after it was stolen.

Lt. Sean McCarthy from the West Valley City Police Department said officers responded to an address near 2500 S Lake Park Circle after a call for shots fired.

They arrived at the scene around 2:30 a.m. Saturday and found the 16-year-old.

Officials said the teen got into an argument with a group of about four to five other juvenile boys.

He told police the other boys took his car and drive off. While leaving, he said they fired at him and he returned fire.

Police did not know if one of the other boys was injured, but said they did find some blood at the scene. They were not able to determine if there was a victim.

They said the 16-year-old was cooperating with investigators.
