(KUTV) - A 16-year-old boy was shot and critically injured as he walked home from school in South Salt Lake on 300 East and 3100 South.

The boy, who was a student at the Granite School District's STEP program, was walking home from school, about two doors down from the school building, when he was shot right outside a house near the sidewalk.

At the time of this post, police were still looking for the shooter.

Ben Horsley, Spokesman for the Granite School District said the STEP program is for students who've violated the safe schools policy by either committing a crime or a violation like bullying.
