OGDEN -- The condition of one of the officers injured in a shootout in Ogden has been upgraded.

Officer Michael Rounkles is in fair condition once again, according to McKay-Dee Hospital spokesman Chris Dallin. Rounkles, who was shot in the leg next to his femoral artery, had been downgraded from fair to serious condition on Thursday.

Officer Kasey Burrell remains in fair condition, as well.

Rounkles, Burrell and four other members of the Weber-Morgan Narcotics Strike Force were injured Jan. 4 while serving a search warrant at an Ogden home. One officer, Jared Francom, was killed. The others have been released from the hospital.

The alleged gunman, Matthew Stewart, 37, was at last word still hospitalized with injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening.
