Utah man shot during Mass upgraded to fair condition
A Utah man shot by his son-in-law during Mass on Father's Day has been upgraded to fair condition.
Hospital officials in Ogden say 66-year-old James Evans has been transferred out of the intensive care unit. He is expected to survive.
A doctor at the hospital had said the bullet went through his ear and out his cheek, missing the brain.
Police say 35-year-old Charles "Ricky" Jennings Jr. fired one shot at the back of Evans' head during a Catholic Mass in Ogden Sunday. Jennings had walked into the church seconds earlier holding hands with his wife, the daughter of Evans.
Jennings was formally charged Tuesday with attempted murder, burglary, robbery and possession of a firearm by prohibited user. He made a video appearance in court, and his bail was set at $105,000, cash only.
Police don't know why Jennings shot Evans.
