KANNARRAVILLE, Iron County — A man who was arrested Friday after exchanging gunfire with an Iron County sheriff's deputy and hospitalized the next day with bleeding in his brain is back in Iron County Jail.

Grant Louise Biederman, 41, was returned to the jail Sunday after being transported by medical helicopter to a northern Utah hospital for emergency medical care, Iron County Sheriff Mark Gower confirmed.

Biederman was treated Friday for a minor head injury at Valley View Medical Center and booked into Iron County Jail after a gunfight with two sheriff's deputies and a Utah Highway Patrol trooper. Police had been called to the Red Lodge Campground, 15 N. Main, where Biederman reportedly was threatening suicide.

A bullet grazed Biederman's head, and one deputy, 27-year-old Kellen Hudson, was shot through the hip.

Hudson was released from Valley View Medical Center on Friday.
