LOGAN — Two more men have been arrested in connection with a shooting in Logan that started as a fight between two people.
An 18-year-old man was shot just after 1:30 a.m. on June 17 near 725 Riverwalk Parkway, Logan police say.
"It was discovered the bullet went through (the man's) right forearm, then grazed his skull causing a sizeable laceration on the top of his head," according to a police booking affidavit.
The victim told police he had agreed to meet Alonzo Pacheco, Jr., 18, to fight, but brought friends along with him in case he was "jumped," the affidavit states. The victim claimed he was indeed jumped by four people and his friends tried to help him. That's when one of the four suspects fired a single shot, striking the victim.
In another incident on Aug. 1, police were called to the parking lot outside the Factory Pizzeria, 119 S. Main in Logan, where three men attacked another group and pistol-whipped at least one victim.
Gabriel Buenafe Sia, 20, of Logan, was arrested following the Aug. 1 incident. Police were then able to tie Sia to both the June 17 and Aug. 1 assaults, according to court records. He is charged in 1st District Court in two cases with several felonies, including attempted murder, a first-degree felony; rioting and three counts of aggravated assault, both third-degree felonies.
During a search of Sia's phone, detectives found pictures of Pacheco and Josue Alatorre, 20, taken just hours after the June 17 shooting, according to the affidavit. On Friday, both Pacheco and Alatorre were booked into the Cache County Jail and accused of being involved in that case.
Pacheco, of North Logan, who was arrested Sept. 10 in Idaho, was charged Monday in 1st District Court with two counts of possession of a weapon by a restricted person, a second-degree felony; and rioting, a third-degree felony.
Alatorre was arrested for investigation of rioting and for being a restricted person in possession of a firearm stemming from an incident in December.
