A teenager formerly of Neligh was arrested Wednesday in connection with a Norfolk shooting that occurred over the weekend.
Capt. Mike Bauer of the Norfolk Police Division said 18-year-old Marquis Granville, now of Norfolk but formerly of Neligh, was arrested on suspicion of terroristic threats and use of a weapon to commit a felony. Granville was a student at Neligh-Oakdale until September.
Also arrested were Zach Siemer, 21 of Norfolk, and Tremain Monroe, 21, homeless.
Norfolk Police had been investigating an incident at a house party on Logan Avenue early Sunday where a man was shot in the foot. Police were told at the time that an unknown assailant entered the party and started shooting, but police have determined that wasn’t the case.
Bauer says the investigation revealed that some attendees were refusing to leave the party. At that point, Bauer says a 12 gauge shotgun was brought to the house and used to threaten the guests that refused to leave. Bauer says at one point the gun was dropped and discharged, shooting the victim in the foot.
Bauer says Seimer, Monroe and Granville were all involved in bringing the gun to the house and threatening the victim.
All three face felony weapon and terroristic threat charges, while Granville is also charged with felony assault.
