OGDEN, Utah, Nov. 28, 2015 (Gephardt Daily) ─ An Ogden man escaped serious injury Saturday morning when a bullet grazed the back of his head during an altercation.

According to the Ogden Police Department, officers were dispatched to the scene just after 4 a.m. When they arrived, they discovered a 40-year-old man with a bullet wound on the back of his head. His injuries were not life-threatening.

Investigators said there is limited information because the witnesses and the victim are being uncooperative, but said two male suspects approached the victim at a home in the area of 2700 Monroe Blvd. An altercation ensued and one of the suspects pulled a handgun and fired two rounds.

The suspects then ran from the scene.

Detectives from the Ogden Metro Gang Task Force and Ogden Investigations Bureau are investigating the incident.
