CLEARFIELD — Police have arrested a third person they say was involved in a shooting that injured five people at a party in Clearfield in March.
Dwayne Ace Brown, 25, of Ogden, was booked into Davis County Jail on Wednesday on suspicion of five counts of aggravated assault, one count of discharging a firearm in the direction of a person or building and one count of riot.
He is being held without bail.
“He wasn’t the shooter, but he told the shooter something like, ‘Get your gun out and shoot them,’ ” Assistant Police Chief Mike Stenquist said.
“Mr. Brown didn’t fire the shot but was an accessory to the shooting. His part was significant.”
The Davis County Attorney’s Office is reviewing the case for formal charges to file in 2nd District Court.
Brown’s first court appearance could be Friday in Farmington.
Clearfield police arrested Brown at his home in Ogden, Stenquist said.
Brown is believed to be affiliated with the Nortenos gang out of Ogden, Stenquist said.
Police are still working to find the actual shooter.
Police went to a home in the area of 150 N. 1200 West, Clearfield, on March 17 after neighbors complained of a loud party and what sounded like fireworks or gunshots.
When they arrived, teenagers and adults could be seen leaving the area.
Officers found four people who had been shot. All of them were treated at local hospitals for gunshot wounds.
Police believe two rival gangs — the Nortenos and East Side Longos — ended up at the party and started a fight outside of the home.
Police found a fifth shooting victim, a 15-year-old Clinton boy, who was later arrested and booked into Farmington Bay Youth Center for his involvement in the fight.
He is a member of the East Side Longos, police say.
Earlier this month, police also arrested Mark Anthony Pizana, 19, of Brigham City.
Police said Pizana, who is a member of the Nortenos gang, drove the shooting suspect and others away from the scene.
Pizana, who was released from Davis County Jail after posting $5,000 bail, was charged with second-degree felony obstructing justice. He appeared in 2nd District Court for a roll-call hearing.
Another hearing is set for May 4.
