DAVIS COUNTY, UTAH – Seth Carreras, a 17-year-old teen, has been charged as an adult with first-degree felony murder of 19-year-old, Hunter Woodson, for selling cooking spices instead of weed.
Carreras is being held in a Davis County jail without bail for the November 21 incident. According to Woodson’s girlfriend, that was present at the time of the shooting, Carreras and Woodson were allegedly texting one another over the potential sale of 1.5 ounces of weed that Carreras wanted to buy from Woodson.
Woodson eventually went over to Carreras home to smoke to test out Woodson’s product. After going back and forth on a price for the weed, they both finally agreed on a final price of $260 for the 1.5 ounces of weed. Carreras went home to get the money, but the bargaining of the weed continued on as Carreras tried lowering the asking price. Once again, finally settling on the price of $121, Carreras returned back to Woodson’s house with the money.
Woodson sent his girlfriend outside to collect the money while he put together a bag of paprika, salt, pepper and other spices. After Carreras received the bag, he immediately realized something was wrong and followed Woodson’s girlfriend into the house.
Carreras and Woodson would eventually get into an argument with Carreras holding a gun, and Woodson’s girlfriend hiding behind a door. Woodson was shot several times and his girlfriend was unharmed.
The police found Carreras at home 22 minutes later hiding underneath a car.
