Police have released more details about the 41-year-old man who remains in the hospital after Monday’s shooting in North Logan.
North Park Police Chief Kim Hawkes said doctors have recovered the bullet and removed the man’s breathing tube. A detective has traveled to the Salt Lake area hospital to interview him. The victim was transferred there by medical helicopter.
The 41-year-old man, who reportedly was leasing the property near 91 W 2500 N, got into a physical altercation with a 21-year-old man just before the shooting took place around 1:00 p.m. Another 21-year-old man, who was friends with the other 21-year-old, was watching the fight from a distance before he allegedly intervened, drawing a handgun and firing a single shot at the victim’s torso.
Officers said the shooter did have a permit to carry a concealed weapon.
Hawkes said officers have questioned both 21-year-olds involved, along with other witnesses. They are postponing releasing further details and the identities until they speak to the victim.
No arrests have been made. Investigators plan on turning their investigation over to the Cache County Attorney’s Office later this week, to determine if any charges will be filed.
