CLEARFIELD — Police have arrested a Taylorsville man they say shot another man in the leg early Saturday morning after being asked to leave a party.

Witnesses told police the shooter was asked to leave a party at about 2 a.m. at the Oakstone Apartments at 1550 S. 100 East, and several partygoers followed him outside.

Clearfield police say the man drove around the apartment complex and then stopped in view of the group outside. The man fired three to five shots at the group, striking a 19-year-old Kearns man in the leg, police said.

Police later caught up with the man in Centerville and took him into custody.

The 19-year-old victim was taken to Davis Hospital and Medical Center and then moved to Ogden Regional Medical Center for surgery.
