Anthony Rendon, 18, was arrested early Tuesday at a home in West Jordan. Rendon was booked into jail on charges of aggravated murder and felony discharge of a firearm. A juvenile was previously taken into custody in connection to the shooting.

Kelly Glaubensklee was involved in a fight at the party in the area of 1450 West 11400 South just before he was killed. According to police, Rendon fired 13 rounds towards Glaubensklee and others as they were leaving the scene.

Glaubensklee was hit in the chest and transported to the hospital where he later died.

The probable cause statement says many of the people attending the party were unknown to each other. A fight began after a female was hit by an unknown male, which led to a second altercation with the same people.

As Rendon attempted to leave the party with others, their car was surrounded by partygoers who started to kick the vehicle as it drove off. When the car stopped, Rendon "displayed a firearm" while pointing it at individuals and firing 13 shots.

A message on a GoFundMe page set up to raise money for Glaubensklee's funeral shared memories of the slain teen.

"Kelly was one of a kind. He walked this Earth with his head held high and a smile that could fix just about anything. He was big and tough but as soon as he grinned you could see that he had the sweetest heart. If you were lucky enough to be his friend you know that he’d do anything and support you through it all in hopes to make you happy and feel validated. If he saw someone needed help, he was there- especially in school with the kids that didn’t stand up for themselves."
