LOGAN — A 29-year-old Ogden man has been arrested for allegedly shooting at a group of teenagers in Providence Canyon. Jonathan Andrew Barley was booked Saturday night into the Cache County Jail.

Barley was arraigned virtually before a judge in 1st District Court, appearing by web conference from jail Monday afternoon. He was charged with two counts of felony discharge of a firearm and seven counts of aggravated assault, all second and third-degree felonies.

Cache County Deputy Attorney said Barley was arrested by Cache County Sheriff’s deputies after he allegedly shot at the group of teenagers. One of the bullets reportedly grazed one of the victims.

Defense attorney Shannon Demler said his client was trying to protect himself. He called the charges a self-defense case but didn’t provide any further details.

Judge Angela Fonnesbeck set bail for Barley at $5,000 and ordered him to appear again in court Wednesday morning. She prohibited him from possessing weapons or consuming alcohol if released from jail.

Barley didn’t speak during the brief arraignment hearing. He could face up to 15 year in prison, if convicted.

Individuals arrested and charged in complaints are presumed innocent unless or until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in court.
