RIVERDALE — Police recovered multiple guns and hundreds of bullets in October from a Riverdale home a suspect in an attempted murder case, according to a search warrant unsealed Thursday.
Police obtained a warrant to search the home of 18-year-old Isacc Jacob Fazzio on Oct. 26 and reportedly found six guns, including hunting rifles, a shotgun, a loaded handgun and a loaded Hi-Point Model 4095 rifle, according to the warrant.
Fazzio is being held at the Weber County Jail on multiple felony charges, including second-degree felony attempted murder; third-degree felony discharge of a firearm; and three counts of possession or use of a firearm by a restricted person.
Police were dispatched to the scene of the shooting at 3:33 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 26, and found a 15-year-old boy who had been shot in his lower right leg, according to a probable cause statement. Witnesses told police that a white male in a black 4-door vehicle drove past two people, the victim and another person, before firing a shot.
The victim told police that he was arguing with a juvenile on Snapchat regarding “gang related rhetoric” minutes prior to the shooting. The victim received photos of hollow-point bullets and messages from the juvenile saying the bullets would be used on him, according to the probable cause statement.
Police identified the owner of the social media account as a 16-year-old boy. The victims identified the shooter as the boy’s older brother, whom they believe to be Fazzio, charging documents say.
Fazzio allegedly fired one round before leaving the scene, according to charging documents. After returning home, Fazzio allegedly told his brother that the people threatening him on social media “wouldn’t be bothering him anymore.”
Police also found a “large” amount of marijuana and paraphernalia in Fazzio’s bedroom. Police say the packaging in which they found the drugs suggests they were packaged “in a manner consistent with sales,” according to charging documents.
As of Thursday, Fazzio is being held at the Weber County Jail. His next court appearance is scheduled for Nov. 28 in Ogden’s 2nd District Court.
