SALT LAKE CITY — A 17-year-old accused of shooting and killing a man during a low-level marijuana deal has been moved from juvenile detention into the Salt Lake County Jail.
Isaac Nacdaniel Patton, of Salt Lake City, who turns 18 in November, was moved into the adult jail on Thursday.
Patton was charged directly as an adult in 3rd District Court with murder and aggravated robbery, first-degree felonies; three counts of discharge of a firearm, a second-degree felony; and possession of a firearm by a restricted person, a third-degree felony.
He is accused of shooting and killing Tristen Mogadam, 18, on Feb. 16 outside Mogadam's Magna residence, 3231 S. Julia Lane (8820 West), after completing a small drug deal. Mogadam was shot in the back as he tried to run back into his house, according to prosecutors.
Patton is the second 17-year-old transferred from juvenile detention into the Salt Lake County Jail this week.
On Monday, David Ivan Diaz, 17, who prosecutors say is a high-ranking gang member, was moved into the adult facility. He and his brother are charged in 3rd District Court with murder, a first-degree felony; four counts of discharge of a firearm with serious bodily injury, a first-degree felony; and three counts of discharge of a firearm with injury, a second-degree felony, for the Christmas Eve shooting death of Gary Hart, 34, in a Shopko parking lot. The shooting is believed to be gang-related.
