A 19-year-old man was mortally wounded during what Layton police say was a drug deal-turned-robbery.

Layton police Lt. Travis Lyman said two male suspects were taken in custody in connection with the 10:25 p.m. Sunday incident near Chapel Street Park.

Bryan Brooks, 19, of Ogden, along with his girlfriend, purportedly drove to the location to sell drugs to Bostin´╗┐ Cole Osborn Crookston, 19, and Isaac Cain Lee Valdez, 18, both of Layton. However, when the two men got inside the vehicle they allegedly attempted to rob the victim, and during an altercation Brooks was shot once in the head.

The suspects then fled the car, which the Brooks' girlfriend drove a short distance away before calling 911.

Brooks was transported in "extremely critical" condition to University of Utah Hospital in Salt Lake City Sunday night. Lyman said he died just before 11 a.m. Monday.

"Throughout course of night our officers were able to track down the suspects and took them into custody at separate locations between 3 and 4 a.m.," Lyman said.

The pair were booked into the Davis County jail on suspicion of murder, aggravated robbery and obstruction of justice. In addition, Crookston was booked on possession of a firearm by a restricted person.

The two suspects each have only minimal prior criminal histories, according to Utah court records.

Crookston entered a guilty plea in abeyance last April to one count of class B misdemeanor shoplifting. A review was set for April 6 before a Davis County justice court judge.

Valdez pleaded guilty last Wednesday to one count of class B misdemeanor domestic violence related assault. A 2nd District Court judge placed him on probation for 18 months, fined him $500 and ordered him to complete a domestic violence treatment course, the court docket states.
