OGDEN — An argument at a party early Friday resulted in one man being shot and another arrested for investigation of attempted homicide.
Two men were involved in a verbal argument at a party in the 500 block of 31st Street, according to a statement from Ogden police. Marcus Pringle, 22, was asked to leave.
Pringle later returned to the party, however, just after midnight and "fired several rounds at the victim," near the intersection of 31st Street and Jefferson Avenue, according to Ogden police. The victim was taken to a local hospital to be treated for a gunshot wound to his ankle.
Pringle was arrested for investigation of attempted homicide and possession of a firearm by a restricted person.
Pringle was charged in Ogden City Justice Court earlier this month with intentional criminal mischief, drug possession and disorderly conduct, all misdemeanors, according to court records. He was found guilty last year in justice court of misdemeanor assault.
In 2002, Pringle was sentenced to the Utah State Prison after being found guilty of illegal purchase or possession a dangerous weapon, a second-degree felony, and firing a weapon from a vehicle, a third-degree felony, according to court records.
