A young man killed in a drive-by shooting was a student at Jordan High School, according to his neighbors.

The Sandy Police Department had not yet released the identity of the 17-year-old as of late Friday afternoon.

Investigators are still asking for the public’s help in locating an older green Ford Explorer.

Police said the teen was shot several times in the front yard and was taken to the hospital, where he later died.

Neighbor Fred Jayne said his cameras showed the vehicle going by several times — “he went down twice and up twice” — possibly to scout out the location prior to the shooting.

Sgt. Clayton Swensen did not release any information on a motive and said it was unclear whether one or more people were in the vehicle.

“We’re still looking into that, investigating how this all came to pass,” Swensen said.

This is a developing story.
