OGDEN — Arrest warrants were issued Tuesday for two cousins accused of shooting and critically injuring a man in Ogden.
Bailey Annmarie Chase, 21, of Harrisville, and Dario Deland Muniz, 32, of Slaterville, were each charged in 2nd District Court with attempted murder and aggravated burglary, first-degree felonies.
On Friday, Ogden police were called to a report of a man shot inside an apartment with a rifle.
As detectives pieced together what happened, they learned that a man and woman were heard arguing in the parking lot of the apartment complex. One witness told police the woman, at one point, said she was "calling my cousin" to which the man told her to do it.
Witnesses later heard a gunshot coming from the victim's apartment and a man and woman running out of it, according to charging documents.
The victim, whose name was not released, "underwent emergency life-saving surgery. The bullet caused severe internal and external bleeding," the charges state.
When the man came out of surgery, he told police that Muniz and Chase, who are cousins, entered his apartment without permission, confronted him and began yelling at him. Muniz hit the victim with the rifle, prompting the man to pick up a hammer, "at which point he was shot," the charges state.
Witnesses told police that Chase had been in a relationship with the victim and at one point lived with him.
