Sandy police this morning say they are no closer to solving yesterday's fatal shooting of a beloved college hockey coach in the parking lot of a Village Inn restaurant.
"We're kind of back to square one in figuring this thing out," said Sgt. Victor Quezada, a police spokesman.
Kenneth G. Dolezsar, 50, an assistant coach for the Utah Valley State College hockey team, was shot to death just before 7 a.m. outside the Village Inn, 150 W. 10600 South, in Sandy.
A man who saw the shooting from about six feet away said the shooter took off in Dolezsar's Lincoln Navigator, which was later found dumped at Lake Hills Cemetery, at 10055 S. State St, Quezada said.
So far, the shooting appears to random, possibly a car-jacking, according to police accounts. But Quezada said detectives are not ruling anything out.
