Ogden Police are investigating after a fatal shooting occurred on Monday, in the 800 block of Lake Street in west Ogden. 

OGDEN — Police have identified the teenager shot and killed Monday evening in Ogden. 

Kamron Johnson, 18, of Ogden died Monday during a shooting at a home in the 800 block of West Lake St. in west Ogden, according to the Ogden Police Department. 

His brother, a 20-year-old man, was critically injured in the shooting. Ogden Police Lt. Brian Eynon said brother was last known to be in critical condition at a local hospital and is “likely” to survive his injuries.

Family members said Kamron was dead by the time police arrived at the scene, according to the Associated Press. 

Kamron was a senior at Ben Lomond High School, Ogden School District spokesman Jer Bates and Eynon confirmed.

Grief counselors are at the school for those students or staff who may need emotional support, Bates said. 

Layton Police have arrested 23-year-old Theron Nelson Farmer Tuesday afternoon in connection with the shooting. Eynon could not confirm a possible motive for the shooting. 

Farmer was arrested at an apartment complex at 225 N. Fairfield Road, according to a tweet from the department. The police activity was “contained to one apartment” and police encouraged people to avoid the area.

Court records show Farmer was released from the custody of the Davis County Jail in January, where he was being held on a felony forgery charge. Farmer had his prison sentence suspended and was allowed out for time served, and was placed on probation for three years. 

On Tuesday, a warrant for Farmer’s arrest was issued out of Davis County in connection to the fraud case, according to court records. The warrant states Farmer “failed to comply” with the terms of his probation, but does not list his alleged involvement with Johnson’s death as a reason for the warrant being issued. 

In an earlier version of this story, ages of the victims were reported incorrectly. The Standard-Examiner apologizes for the error.
