Bountiful police say fireworks mistaken for gunfire

August 12, 2019

BOUNTIFUL, Utah (AP) — Police in Bountiful are searching for the person responsible for setting off fireworks in a park restroom, which were mistaken for gunfire.

The Bountiful City Police Department said Monday that investigators are working to identify a suspect seen on surveillance video last week at a city park.

According to police, someone lit large aerial fireworks and severely damaged a bathroom.

They say people in the area mistook them for gunshots in the wake of mass shootings in Texas and Ohio.

Police say one of the suspects appears on camera and is wearing a white shirt and blue shorts.

They say a vehicle involved in the incident is described as a newer silver Ford truck that had furniture in the bed.
