North Ogden police have solved the case of who shot a corn vendor it was the vendor who accidentally popped a cap on himself.
On Aug. 25, a 30-year-old man told police he was selling corn from a roadside stand near 1920 N. Washington Blvd. when, just before noon, a man approached him, demanding money. He told officers the suspect shot him with a handgun and fled. The man gave a full description of the shooter, who was about the man's age.
During a follow up interview, police say the corn vendor's story fell apart. The man "reported the robbery to save himself from embarrassment for accidentally discharging the handgun," according to a news release from police.
