BHC man charged in connection with shooting

April 6, 2019

BULLHEAD CITY — A Bullhead City man has been arrested on attempted murder and other charges after an investigation into a shooting incident earlier this week.

The arrest of 21-year-old Jonathan Daniel Hash comes after detectives interviewed multiple witnesses concerning a Monday morning report of shots fired in the area of Mead Lane and Gregg Lane, police spokeswoman Emily Fromelt said.

Detectives learned from Hash and others involved that Hash and a friend had gone to a location on Mead Lane to confront another person, Fro-melt said.

When they left the confrontation, Hash reportedly fired rounds while walking away, then fired more rounds at a person who approached the residence in which Hash was staying.

Hash was the only person armed at the time of the confrontations, Fromelt said.

Detectives discovered that a house had been struck, she said, and that the stray bullet went through a window, a television and a couch.

The residence was occupied at the time, Fromelt said. The residents in the house that was struck were not part of the altercation, she said.

Another round struck an unoccupied parked vehicle in the area, she said, and the owner of the vehicle also was not involved in the altercation.

After serving a search warrant at the suspect’s residence Wednesday, detectives booked Hash on suspicion of attempted second-degree murder, aggravated assault, possession of a prohibited weapon, disorderly conduct with a weapon, unlawful discharge of a firearm, endangerment and criminal damage.

He was taken to the Mohave County jail in Kingman, where he was being held on $6 million bond, according to jail records Thursday.

No one was injured in the incident, Fromelt said.
