SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — A dramatic rescue by a Salt Lake City police SWAT team happened Wednesday when officers burst into a business and saved a man that investigators believe was about to be murdered.
Michael James Fleming, 23, was found badly beaten with his eyes swollen completely shut and jaw broken, bound and gagged with a piece of tape over his mouth, and stuffed into the trunk of a car, said Salt Lake police Sgt. Robin Snyder.
