UT - Stephen Chavez, 26, shot to death in Salt Lake City smoke shop
SALT LAKE CITY ó A father says he witnessed his sonís death after the young man was gunned down Wednesday night in a Poplar Grove smoke shop.
Police say 26-year-old Steven Guadalupe Chavez was killed inside CJ smoke shop on 900 West and 800 South at about 8:30 p.m. Chavezís father and owner of the smoke shop, Isabel Chavez, says the suspect put the barrel of an assault rifle to his sonís chest and fired. He says the man fired several more rounds into Stevenís body as he lay on the ground.
According to Chavezís father, it was all because his son asked the suspect to move his car. He says the suspect refused and initially became confrontational with him. When that happened, Chavezís father says Steven tried to intervene and the scene escalated into what amounted to a fistfight ó one the suspect allegedly ran away from, driving off in his red sedan.
ďAbout 20 minutes later, he [suspect] arrived again, with somebody else driving a different vehicle, a dark blue vehicle, and at that point the shooting occurred,Ē said Salt Lake Police officer Josh Ashdown.

The man accused of fatally shooting a Salt Lake City store clerk may testify on his own behalf Monday as the trial in the two-year-old murder case winds to a close.
Yelfris Sosa-Hurtado had been expected to take the stand in Salt Lake City’s 3rd District Court on Friday, but a detour in the proceedings during testimony from a homicide detective put the case on temporarily on hold, barring the defense from presenting its case.
