DRAPER, Utah (ABC4) – Police have made two arrests in a shooting that happened outside of a Draper Airbnb on April 3.
Two 18-year-old suspects were arrested around 1:30 p.m. on Thursday for their alleged involvement in a shooting that left 27-year-old Austin Terry Powell and 21-year-old Jonathan July Fuentes dead during a party at an Airbnb in Draper.
One suspect, Ashtyn Ortega was arrested in Herriman while another suspect was arrested in Lehi. The second suspect was a minor at the time of the shooting so police will not release his name.
The minor has been booked into juvenile detention while Ortega was booked into Salt Lake County Jail on aggravated murder charges.
They do believe the incident started with a fight over throwing bottles on the road.
A fight then broke out outside of the Airbnb rental early Sunday morning at 11464 Cranberry Hill Ct.
Officials say they received a call just before 1 a.m. on Sunday morning regarding the shooting, which reportedly happened as the party was breaking up.
Police are not releasing any more information on the case because the arrest warrant is sealed.
Airbnb released a statement on Sunday regarding the incident:
“We join the Draper community in condemning this senseless gun violence. We ban parties, and we have removed the booking guest from our platform as we conduct a thorough investigation. We have also reached out to the leadership of the Draper Police Department to offer our assistance as they work to find the person responsible for this criminal act.“
