OGDEN — Police say a man was in critical condition after being shot in an Ogden parking lot Thursday afternoon.

The shooting occurred near 893 24th Street, where witnesses described seeing a confrontation between the drivers of two vehicles. One man was shot in a parking lot, and a light-colored sedan was seen leaving the scene, according to Ogden police.

Mark Lopez described what he saw from outside a drugstore after hearing at least one gunshot nearby.

"Blood all over the man's face and arm," Lopez said. "We just started praying."

The 35-year-old man was taken to McKay Dee Hospital in critical condition.

Police would not release further details Thursday.
