A South Ogden man shot during an apparent break-in earlier this week was in improved condition Wednesday.

South Ogden police spokeswoman Marci Edwards said the 34-year-old man, who had been listed in serious condition Tuesday at McKay-Dee Hospital Center, was "in stable condition and could soon be released soon."

Police continue to develop information on the suspect, described as a Latino male wearing a blue bandanna over his face, a white hat, dark shirt and white basketball-type pants with a blue stripe. No arrests had been made as of Wednesday.

Edwards said the attack occurred just before 10 p.m. Monday. The victim called 911, saying someone had just kicked in the door of his unit at the Villa South Apartment Complex, 3750 S. Grant Ave., and shot him.

Edwards said the incident was being investigated as an attempted homicide.

Police have not released the man's identity nor details about his wounds.

Anyone with information is asked to call 801-629-8211.
