OGDEN — An Orem man charged with allegedly shooting a man after a brawl at an Ogden bar in September has agreed to a plea deal.
Frenchman Davonti Dyer, 23, pleaded guilty Monday to one count of felony discharge of a firearm with serious bodily injury, a first-degree felony, and one count of riot, a third-degree felony. The felony discharge count carries a possible sentence of five years to life in prison, and the riot charge carries a possible prison sentence of zero to five years.
In return for his plea, prosecutors dropped three other felonies levied against Dyer. Those charges consist of one count of obstructing justice, a second-degree felony, and two counts of felony discharge of a firearm with serious bodily injury, both third-degree felonies.
Dyer was present in court Monday and was not in police custody. Dyer was arrested at his home in Orem and was booked in the Weber County Jail on Sept. 19, 2018, according to booking reports. He posted a $45,000 bond and was released from jail on Nov. 6.
Dyer appeared alongside his attorneys Logan Collins and Joseph Rupp.
Before Dyer signed his plea agreement, Deputy Weber County Attorney Thomas Pedersen read the factual basis for the charges.
Dyer pleaded guilty to shooting a man in the leg outside the Kokomo Bar in Ogden following a fight that occurred minutes before in the bar. The man was shot in the back of his leg, with the bullet going in the back of his thigh and exiting just above his knee.
A total of three men were found to be shot at the scene. Police later said all those shot would recover from their injuries.
Dyer’s next court appearance will be for his sentencing, which is scheduled to take place on March 13 in Ogden’s 2nd District Court.
Two other men, Erin Tramale Gaston, 25, and DeAngelo Micko Holland, 40, were both charged in connection with the shooting. Both of their cases have yet to be resolved as of Monday afternoon, according to court records.
