OGDEN — An Ogden man has been indicted in district court for allegedly shooting at another man on 25th Street last August.
Charges were filed against Devante Scott Mack, 24, on March 15, according to court documents. Mack was charged with one count of attempted murder, a first-degree felony; and possession or use of a firearm by a restricted person, a third-degree felony.
On Aug. 12, police were dispatched to a report of shots fired at 160 25th Street, according to a probable cause statement.
Two officers were nearby on 25th Street and heard the shots. The two saw a man, whom they say was Mack, running away from the scene. Officers pursued him, but Mack allegedly did not stop running. During the chase Mack allegedly jumped a fence on the south side of 25th Street, and police would later find a loaded .22 caliber handgun in the same area. Mack was later taken into custody.
Police obtained video surveillance footage from the Historic Place Bar on 25th Street, which allegedly showed Mack point a gun at another man and fire “several shots” before fleeing.
A search warrant in the case made public shortly after Mack’s indictment indicates Mack and the man had a short conversation before Mack allegedly pulled a gun from his pocket and fired. Five shots were reportedly fired, according to the warrant.
The man was not hit by any of the rounds fired, according to the affidavit. The building was shot “at least twice” and police recovered several .22 caliber shell casings at the scene.
Police also allege that Mack was using methamphetamine at the time of the shooting. A blood test taken from Mack after he was arrested allegedly tested positive for meth.
Mack was booked in jail shortly after his arrest and was being held in lieu of a $8,900 bond, according to previous Standard-Examiner reporting. He later posted bail and was released from jail custody.
Three days after charges were filed in March, a new warrant was issued for Mack’s arrest. As of Wednesday morning, he was not in police or jail custody.
Mack does not have an attorney listed in court documents and has not yet been assigned an initial appearance date in Ogden’s 2nd District Court.
