Utah man who shot himself in the head is expected to survive
ROOSEVELT, Utah (AP) — Authorities say a man who shot himself in the head in eastern Utah is expected to survive.
The Deseret News reports that police officers responded to a Roosevelt home about 2 a.m. Sunday on a report of domestic violence.
They found a man outside the home and were trying to detain him when he allegedly pulled out a handgun, loaded a bullet and raised the weapon.
A Duchesne County Sheriff’s deputy fired twice when the man raised the gun, but both shots missed and hit a car.
The man shot himself in the head and was flown by medical helicopter to a hospital.
His name and age haven’t been released.
Sheriff’s officials say the man is expected to survive, but they didn’t disclose details on his injuries.
