Search Scaled Back for Utah Ranger Shooter Suspect

MOAB, Utah -- Authorities say they're further pulling back on the search for the man suspected of shooting and critically wounding a Utah park ranger.

The Grand County sheriff says all mobile command centers will be closed, and rangers instead will run routine patrols in the desert area near Moab where the manhunt for 40-year-old Lance Leeroy Arellano took place.

Ranger Brody Young was injured in a Nov. 19 shootout with the suspect while conducting a routine parking lot check at the Poison Spider Mesa Trailhead.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports perimeters set in the search area likely will come down, too.

Authorities believe Arellano was shot in the leg during the shootout.

Young remains in critical but stable condition at a Grand Junction, Colo., hospital.
