A Utah man injured in string of Ogden shootings has died; police don’t think he was the intended victim

A 28-year-old who was shot in the head in the last of a series of shootings in Ogden one weekend in late November has died, police announced Thursday.

Brian Housley was shot just after 2:30 a.m. Nov. 27 while inside a home near 900 East and 16th Street, Lt. Tim Scott said. He was put on life support after the shooting and died Nov. 30.

Police believe the shooting was possibly gang-motivated, though Scott said it doesn’t seem Housley was the shooter’s intended victim because he wasn’t affiliated with any gang.

“There’s nothing that tells us that he was the one that was specifically targeted,” Scott said. “There were other people at the home.”

That shooting was the second in that area in a 13-hour period. An 18-year-old was shot about a block and a half away from there, near 750 West and Canyon Road, that afternoon.

The teenager was taken to the hospital and was expected to recover, according to police.

Someone also fired shots just before midnight the day before in downtown, on 25th Street near 200 East.

Scott said police haven’t determined if those shootings are connected, but they are being investigated by the same team of detectives.

Police haven’t arrested the suspected shooter in Housley’s death, but they have taken several people in for questioning.
