(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Investigators got their first chance to question a man who shot at a Utah Highway Patrol trooper and was later shot in the face while being arrested.

David Lynn Williams is charged with attempted murder in the confrontation -- but investigators say he doesn't remember much of it. He's in a Salt Lake City hospital, recovering from the gunshot wound.

Prosecutors say Williams shot at the off-duty trooper at a Cedar City auto parts store. When they chased Williams down, he reportedly pulled the gun again, and was shot by police.

The Iron County Attorney's Office investigator who spoke to Williams this week says the suspect appears to have a fuzzy memory of what happened that day in December. He also may have been under medication on the day of the shooting.
