CLEARFIELD, UTAH – After initially having doubts, Layton Police are now believing that a shooting that occurred on September 1 was a case of self-defense. The two men who were at the center of the dispute were seen fighting over a weapon that lead to the man who was shot, Dustin Acosta, to walk into a local hospital for treatment of a gunshot wound in the torso. According to Assistant Police Chief Devin Rogers, one man brandished a firearm at the second man. The first man, Acosta, was the one who was shot and is now suspected of third-degree felony aggravated assault.
