KEARNS, Utah — Salt Lake County law enforcement officials say they want to send a clear message regarding violent gang activity in the valley --- it won't be tolerated.

"If you commit violent crime in our community, it will be addressed, it will be investigated and it will be prosecuted from the day of the event to the day of sentencing," said Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill at a news conference here Friday. "That is a commitment we are making to each other and to this community."
