2 men, 2 women plead guilty in Hyrum shooting

LOGAN — Two men and two women pleaded guilty Tuesday to participating in a drive-by shooting two weeks ago in Hyrum.

Andrew Pham, 25, and Eduardo Arellano, 24, pleaded guilty in 1st District Court to attempted murder, a first-degree felony. Nicole Marie Pagan, 24, and Mina Siyavong, 18, pleaded guilty to riot, a second-degree felony.

The four, who are from the West Valley City area, drove on the morning of Sept. 18 to a Hyrum mobile-home park where a 40-year-old man who was putting equipment into a truck was shot by a bullet that penetrated both legs. The man was treated at Logan Regional Hospital and is recovering.

Officials said the shooting might have been in retaliation for the victim getting one of the men's friends in trouble. Sentencing was scheduled for Nov. 26.

Pham and Arellano face sentences of three to 15 years in prison. Pagan and Siyavong are looking at one- to 15-year sentences.

Although riot is a third-degree felony, the women were charged with second-degree felonies because the shooting was within 1,000 feet of a school, said Tony C. Baird, chief criminal deputy for the Cache County attorney's office. South Cache 8-9 Center was locked down temporarily because of the shooting.

The four were arrested in Brigham City shortly after the shooting. Pham and Arellano are being held in the Cache County Jail without bail.

Judge Clint S. Judkins set bail for Pagan and Siyavong at $125,000. Both remained in jail Tuesday.
