FARMINGTON -- A sentencing hearing has been scheduled for the 17-year-old who fired a gun at a party in Clearfield, leaving five people wounded in March.

Anthony Joseph Dominguez is scheduled to appear for a sentencing hearing July 16 before Judge Michael G. Allphin.

On June 4, Dominguez entered guilty pleas to two counts of second-degree felony discharge of a firearm.

He was originally charged with four counts of second-degree felony discharge of a firearm and one count of third-degree felony riot.

The Davis County Attorney's Office agreed to dismiss two of the second-degree felonies and the third-degree felony in exchange for the guilty plea.

Dominguez is being held in Davis County Jail in lieu of $200,000 bail.

According to police, Dominguez, who is a member of the Nortenos gang, went to a party March 17 in Clearfield. Members of a rival gang, the East Side Longos, also showed up at the party and words were exchanged.

The two groups agreed to go outside to fight, according to court documents.

During the fight, Dominguez "pulled out a gun and fired numerous shots toward the home and party guests."

Five other people have also been charged in connection with the shooting. Their cases are still pending.

Robert Gonzalez, 18; Christopher Christia Suarez, 19; Dwayne Ace Brown, 25; and Ricky Valentino Salazar, 18, are each charged with third-degree felony riot.

Mark Anthony Pizana, 19, is charged with one count of second-degree felony obstructing justice.

Gonzalez, Suarez and Salazar all have court hearings set for July 16, Brown has a court hearing set for June 25 and Pizana's hearing is set for Wednesday.
