TAYLORSVILLE — Four people were arrested after multiple shots were fired outside a house party in Taylorsville early Sunday.

Police were called to a home near 5000 South and 2500 West about 2 a.m on a report of threats involving a gun, according to a police booking affidavit. A group of juveniles and young adults were hosting a party at the residence with about 20 to 25 in attendance, police stated.

An officer arrived at the house to see a car parked in front and people standing around it and, as the affidavit states, the people standing around the car suddenly began running in all directions.

"At about the same time, I observed a firearm being extended out of the passenger side of the vehicle. I heard and saw multiple shots being fired," the officer wrote in the affidavit.

The officer then witnessed a firearm pointed out of the driver's side window and more shots were fired, the affidavit states.

Police said no one was injured in the shootings.

The vehicle sped away after the shots were fired, but was quickly pulled over by Taylorsville police, who conducted a felony high-risk stop. Four men in the car, all 18, were arrested. Three of them were determined to be intoxicated, according to booking affidavits.

Isaac Michael Archuleta, who was sitting in the back seat on the driver's side, was found to have a loaded handgun in his waistband with a round in the chamber, the affidavit states. Additionally, investigators wrote that Jaden Jorgensen, who was sitting in the rear passenger seat, had a rifle and magazines next to him. The driver, Chailier Longobardi, had a gun underneath his seat, according to the affidavit.

Aladino Gurule, who was in the front passenger seat, admitted "to shooting multiple times from multiple guns, in an attempt to 'scatter' people from the party," according to the affidavit. A gun was found in the front passenger door, next to him.

All four men were arrested for investigation of causing a riot, shooting from a vehicle and felony discharge of a firearm.
