Park City police blotter: gunshot-like noise heard

The Park City Police Department on Sunday, Nov. 22 at 10:23 a.m. received a complaint from someone on Samuel Colt Court about a noise that appeared to be a gunshot.

The police were told a neighbor may have fired a small-caliber gun in a backyard.
