      Suspects named in Marquette shooting incident

      Philip Swanson

      The names of the suspects in the drive by shooting on Center Street in Marquette have been released.

      Philip Scott Swanson, 19, of Ishpeming has been arrested on a three count felony warrant. He is charged with one count of possession of a short barrel shotgun/rifle which is a felony five years in prison and/or $2,500; one count of discharging a firearm at or in a building a felony of four years and/or $2,000 fine; and one count firearm discharge from a vehicle, which also is a felony punishable by four years and/or $2,000 fine.

      The charges stem from an investigation of an incident that happened early Sunday morning at 527 Center Street. The shooting stemmed from an argument between parties over a girl and a previous drug transaction.

      "Anytime a firearm is discharged or a weapon is used in a crime is very serious because of the potential consequences of what could happen even if it was unintentional to shoot somebody there's still a propensity that could happen," said Detective Gordon Warchock, Marquette City Police.

      Swanson was in the vehicle where the shot was fired from, and it was later found that he fired the weapon.

      There were seven occupants in the suspect vehicle at the time: five males and two female ranging in age from 15 to 21 years. Two of the individuals, 17-year-old Dylan Shawn Olli and 17-year-old Casey Michael Olli, both of Marquette, were arrested for possession of marijuana.

      Swanson is being lodged in the Marquette County Jail at this time, and is due back in court on February 6.

      The investigation revealed that Dylan Olli was driving the the pickup truck that was used in the incident. Dylan and Casey Olli were originally arrested for possession of marijuana.

      Dylan Olli, 17, was arrested again on a two count felony warrant authorized by the Marquette County Sheriff's office. Olli is charged with one felony count weapons, firearms, discharge in or at a building, and one felony count of weapons, firearms, discharge from a vehicle. Both felonies are four years and/or $2,000 in fines.

      Olli is being held at this time in Marquette County Jail on a $200,000 bond.

      The investigation into the incident continues.
