Utah man charged in fatal reservation shooting

Salt Lake City Utah (AP) July 2011
Prosecutors in eastern Utah have filed murder and attempted murder charges against a Myton man in connection with a weekend shooting that left one person dead and another critically injured.

The first-degree felonies and five other charges were filed against Bruce Silva in Vernal’s 8th District Court.

A warrant has been issued for the 23-year-old’s arrest.

Silva has been on the run from authorities since Saturday, when police say he fatally shot 25-year-old James Edward Carey in the head on the Uintah and Ouray Reservation near Lapoint.

Jared R. Hurley, 34, was also shot, but survived.

Court papers say Silva was upset over his broken car window. It was not immediately clear whether Silva had an attorney.
