OGDEN, Utah — Two people have been arrested in connection to a shooting at an Ogden intersection that left one man dead.

Mauro Soto, 21, and Anthony Barela, 30, were booked into the Weber County Jail on outstanding, but unrelated, warrants, according to a press release from the Ogden Police Department.

The fatal incident occurred at 1200 Harrison Boulevard on Tuesday, Jan. 17.

When officers arrived on scene, they found 24-year-old Juan Garcia, of Ogden, with multiple gunshot wounds.

Garcia was taken to the hospital where he died from his injuries.
