For a while, North Ogden police were on the lookout for a gunman who had allegedly held up and shot the proprietor of a roadside corn stand.
On Thursday, however, North Ogden police Sgt. Clark Crowther said the stand owner had changed his story. Now, the embarrassed produce salesman acknowledges, he concocted the robbery and shooting story because he actually shot himself in the lower back by accident.
Dusty Moore, 30, had reported the incident last Saturday, saying a Latino gunman had shot him while robbing his stand near 1920 N. Washington Blvd.
