Injured Utah Officer's Condition Worsens

January 15, 2012  | 

One of the two Ogden (Utah) Police officers still hospitalized after being wounded in a deadly Jan. 4 drug raid firefight has taken a turn for the worse, reports the Salt Lake Tribune.

Officer Michael Rounkles, a five-year veteran of the department, has slipped from fair to serious condition. The 29-year-old officer was shot in the face and stomach while attempting to help a wounded officer during a Jan. 5 narcotics raid. Five other Odgen officers were shot, including Officer Jared Francom, who was killed.

The officers were executing a "knock and announce" search warrant at the home of Matthew Stewart, a 37-year-old Army veteran.
