Arrest warrant issued for Nevada man in Utah shooting sprees
An arrest warrant has been issued for a Las Vegas man facing nearly two dozen felony charges for allegedly opening fire in two Salt Lake County communities last November.
Stacey Renod Wesley, 24, had been released from Salt Lake County Jail on Jan. 30 after posting bond. On Tuesday, a 3rd District Court magistrate issued an arrest warrant when Wesley failed to show for a preliminary hearing.
Wesley faces trial on three counts of first-degree felony attempted murder to 20 counts of third-degree felony discharge of a firearm.
Wesley, whose street name is "Stacey Macc," allegedly fired more than 40 shots from a 9mm handgun in separate incidents on Nov. 23 and 25. Police say he targeted apartments in two west Salt Lake County neighborhoods while looking for a man he apparently believed as stolen unspecified property from him.
In the first incident, Wesley allegedly fired at least 20 times at three people he purportedly though were involved with a man nicknamed "Tank." In the second incident, he allegedly fired 21 times into two apartments where the man's mother and sister resided.
No one was hit in the storm of bullets.
On Dec. 19, Wesley was arrested. Police seized two firearms, including a 9mm handgun with a 33-round magazine clip. According to court records, forensic tests matched the bullets from the crime scenes to that weapon.
When arrested this time, Wesley is to be held without bail, the court warrant states.
