One Ogden man shoots another dead as they argue over a drone, police say

The suspect reportedly fired his pistol seven times.

(Ogden City Police Department) An Ogden man is in jail after reportedly shooting and shooting another man while they were arguing over a drone.

A dispute over a drone ended in one Ogden man shooting and shooting another.

According to a probable cause statement, the 25-year-old suspect called police just before 10pm on Monday and said he had shot and killed another man after they had an argument over the drone. When police arrived at the scene in the 700 N. Liberty area, they found the victim dead.

The gunman, who told police he didn’t know the 31-year-old victim, said he “heard a noise from a vehicle” so he went outside and flew the drone “to investigate.” The drone crashed into a tree, so he “went through his house with his gun in hand” to get it.

The suspect said the victim was holding the drone and that when the victim approached him, the victim ran away and then “turned to face him with one hand on the drone and one hand in his pocket.” As the victim approached him, the suspect told police “he fired about seven shots” and killed him.

According to the probable cause statement, surveillance video from the suspect’s home can be seen flying the drone and can be heard crashing into a tree. The video also shows the suspect “pulling the bolt out of the firearm before approaching the victim.” The two are heard arguing before about seven gunshots are heard.

The suspect was sent to the Weber County Jail for a homicide investigation. He is being held without bail.

The Salt Lake Tribune generally does not name suspects unless they have been officially charged with a criminal offense.
