OGDEN — An Ogden man with criminal history in at least four states was arrested Sunday night after police say he fired several rounds into a car full of people, critically injuring a man.
Cedric Broadnax, 36, was booked into the Weber County Jail for investigation of attempted murder, five counts of illegally shooting a gun, and possession of a weapon by a restricted person.
Officers were called to a parking lot near 2500 Grant Ave. about 8:30 p.m. Sunday on a report of an aggravated assault. They arrived to find a 34-year-old man had been shot, according to a statement from Ogden police. The man, whose name was not released, was taken to McKay-Dee Hospital in critical condition.
The man was shot twice while getting into a car, according to a police affidavit.
The victim’s girlfriend said she was accosted by Broadnax minutes before the shooting, the affidavit states. Broadnax ran off after her boyfriend confronted him. Detectives collected video from business surveillance cameras in the area that showed Broadnax followed the victim and his girlfriend to the parking lot after the confrontation, the affidavit states, and then “fired a gun several times into a car full of passengers, striking one person causing serious bodily injury.”
Detectives developed information leading them to Broadnax and he was taken into custody by the Ogden Metro SWAT team at his apartment, 194 25th St.
“Cedric has criminal history spanning from Idaho, California, Oregon and Washington,” the affidavit states.
