It’s been a rough week for hunters in Utah.
The Utah State Fairgrounds was shut down for a two-day festival after multiple workers were injured and two workers died from heat exhaustion.
The National Rifle Association, which sponsored the fair, issued a statement about the heat: “No one is immune from the heat of the desert.
As hunters, we must remain vigilant and take care of ourselves in hot weather.
If you’re tired of seeing dead animals on display, please leave your vehicle and call 911 if you have to.
Our members are our safety and security.
If they become unsafe, please call 911.”
The Fairgrounds closed at noon Tuesday.
The Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office said a number of employees were in critical condition.
A man was found dead inside the fairgrounds after a shooting.
The shooter has not been identified.
The Fairgrounds issued a message Tuesday saying “the safety of our employees is our number one priority and we are continuing to cooperate fully with authorities to identify the individual responsible for the death.”
