He and a friend got into an argument at the friend’s uncle’s house in Midvale on Sunday when the man pulled out a gun and put it to his friend’s head, according to the charges. The friend grabbed the barrel of the gun and tried to move it away when it went off, shooting him in the stomach, the charges add.

The friend’s uncle and aunt ran outside and called 911.

The bullet missed the friend’s vital organs, according to Unified Police Lt. Kent Hansen. He was taken to the hospital and later released.

Hansen did not know what the argument was about.
