FARMINGTON -- A defense attorney has asked for a mental evaluation to be completed on a man who was involved in a shooting with Layton police.
Brian Lane Harris, 23, appeared in 2nd District Court recently for a felony arraignment hearing. He is charged with second-degree felony discharge of a firearm with injury; class A misdemeanor failure to stop at command of police; class B misdemeanor commission of domestic violence; third-degree felony aggravated assault; and third-degree felony obstructing justice.
Two of the charges stem from the March 21 shooting incident, when police said Harris shot his live-in girlfriend. The last three charges regard a domestic violence incident at the same location in February, according to court documents.
Harris' attorney, Bill Albright, requested that the judge order a mental evaluation be done before the case goes forward.
Another hearing is set for Sept. 27.
