OGDEN — Police have arrested a woman who they say shot a man who was trying to get her to leave an Ogden residence.

Mauren Beth Wall, 30, of Morgan, was booked into the Weber County Jail for investigation of aggravated assault, aggravated burglary, possession of a firearm by a restricted person, evidence tampering and possession of drug paraphernalia.

About 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, police were called to 2718 Brinker Ave. on a report of a shooting.

The incident began when police say a woman arrived at her home and found her hoverboard was sitting outside her bedroom window and her bedroom light was on when nobody was supposed to be in the house. She went inside and confronted Wall, according to a police affidavit.

“(The woman) explained that Mauren was in the residence without permission. (She) stated that she and Mauren began verbally arguing about money. During the argument, Mauren brandished a firearm,” the affidavit states.

Wall took two cellphones from the residents, and then shot a man in the stomach as he attempted to escort Wall off the property, according to a statement from Ogden police.

The man was taken to McKay-Dee Hospital and his injuries were not believed to be life-threatening, according to police.

When 911 was called, the caller was able to identify the shooter as Wall, the affidavit states. Police were able to pull up information on her and spotted her vehicle in the 200 block of 26th Street where she was pulled over and arrested.

The gun police believe was used in the shooting was recovered from a garbage bin at a convenience store near 26th and Adams Avenue, the affidavit states. The two cellphones and drug paraphernalia were also found.

According to court records, Wall was convicted of felony shoplifting in December and was scheduled to be sentenced at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, about eight hours before the shooting. At the same time, she was scheduled to be sentenced for violating her probation from a previous conviction of attempting to escape from custody in 2018.

Wall’s lengthy criminal history also includes other convictions for theft and drug-related crimes, court records state.
