FARMINGTON — An 18-year-old man was sentenced to prison Monday for his role in a shooting.
Appearing before Judge Michael Allphin in 2nd District Court, Daniel Alonso Garcia received two separate one- to 15-year prison sentences for his role in a gang-related shooting that occurred in Clearfield on Jan. 6.
Garcia shot Darrell Morris, 35, three times at a party that was attended by gang members with several different gang affiliations.
Police said Morris told them he is a former member of the Northside Hoovers gang of Arkansas.
Garcia and the others involved in the shooting are members of the East Side Longos gang, police said.
Garcia was 17 at the time of the shooting, but his case was moved from juvenile court to adult court in February, shortly after his birthday.
Garcia was originally charged with the discharge of a firearm, with serious bodily injury and gang enhancement, a first-degree felony; attempted murder, a first-degree felony; riot, a third-degree felony; and possession of a dangerous weapon, a class B misdemeanor.
In June, as part of a plea deal, Garcia pleaded guilty to second-degree felony discharge of a firearm in the direction of a person, second-degree felony aggravated assault with serious bodily injury and third-degree felony riot with a weapon.
The deal allowed Garcia’s misdemeanor charge to be dropped and he is allowed to serve his 0- to 5-year third-degree sentence concurrently with that of the second-degree felonies.
