RIVERDALE, Utah — Four days after a fatal shooting on Christmas, police are looking for a Utah man wanted for murder in Riverdale.

Early Friday morning, 36-year-old Trevor Anthony Martin was shot and killed. A 42-year-old woman was also shot and critically wounded.

Liam Gale, 31, is one of three suspects in connection with the shooting, and police said Tuesday that he is still at large and considered armed and dangerous.

Two other suspects were arrested the day of the shooting. Brittany Rogers, 31, is accused of driving Gale and 16-year-old Rayburn Bennett to a home near 5100 S. 1050 West to commit a robbery. Once there, police say Gale and Bennett forced their way into the victims' home. An altercation occurred, and shots were fired. Police have not stated which suspect fired the shots or if both Gale and Bennett did. Rogers then drove the suspects away from the scene.

Bennett is being charged as an adult with aggravated murder, attempted aggravated murder, aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary and obstruction of justice.

Rogers has been formally charged with murder, aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary, aggravated assault and obstruction of justice.

Police say Gale has been "on the run since the shooting." He was seen driving in Salt Lake City at one point, but the vehicle he was in was found without him.

While police are asking the public to help locate Gale, they advise to not approach him and instead call Riverdale Police immediately at 801-395-8221, or 911 in case of emergency. Seen above in a mugshot from a prior arrest, Gale is 5’9”, 195 pounds and has brown hair.
