Minot police are investigating a shooting.....

    MINOT, ND - Minot police are investigating a shooting. At 6:23 PM Wednesday, officers responded to a northwest Minot residence for a report of an 18-year old man who had been shot multiple times. It was later reported that a shooting had taken place at a nearby apartment complex, located in the 1600 block of Terrace Drive. The investigation revealed the man had been shot at this apartment complex and fled to the second location where someone called 9-1-1 for the victim.

    The victim was taken to the hospital where he is being treated for multiple gunshot wounds, which appear to be non-life-threatening. Police say this appears to be an isolated incident and there is no immediate danger to the general public.

    No suspects are in custody at the this time and the investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Minot Police Department at 852-0111 or Crime Stoppers at 852-7463.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The American Indian tribe leading the fight against the Dakota Access oil pipeline says federal officials are being uncooperative as they complete more court-ordered environmental study of the project.

    The Standing Rock Sioux wants a federal judge to order that the tribe be allowed "a meaningful role" in the process. The Cheyenne River Sioux last month made a similar request.

    Judge James Boasberg last summer ordered the Army Corps of Engineers to further study the pipeline's impact on tribal interests. The tribes say they're being left out of the process. Corps attorneys in their most recent status report filed with the court say they've had difficulties getting needed information from the tribes.

    If Boasberg grants the tribal requests, it could delay the Corps' anticipated April 2 completion of the work.

    FARGO, N.D. (PNS) - The Midwest's largest meeting on dementia is happening this weekend. On Saturday, the Mayo Clinic and Minnesota-North Dakota chapter of the Alzheimer's Association are hosting the "Meeting of the Minds Dementia Conference" in St. Paul, Minnesota. It will feature sessions and exhibits from experts in the field of dementia research.

    Kendra Binger, program manager in the Fargo office of the Alzheimer's Association chapter, has a presentation on how people can reduce the risk factors for dementia through a healthy lifestyle.

    "Looking at things like life long learning, exercising, challenging your mind, staying socially connected as we get older," she says. "Doing all of those things won't prevent Alzheimer's from occurring, but the symptoms may not be as severe or as apparent as early as they would have."

    The number of people with Alzheimer's symptoms is expected to skyrocket in the coming decades. According to a UCLA study, this population will more than double by 2060.

    Binger says her association has set up an extensive network in North Dakota to help people with dementia, as well as their caregivers.

    New to the conference this year is a technology lab. Binger says it will feature some of the innovative ways technology can help people with dementia, such as devices that make cell phones easier to use and can turn off a stove if it's been left on for too long.

    "Technology for people living with dementia is becoming a bigger piece of the conversation, because that can really help that person living with the disease, as well as caregivers, keep them at home longer and at home safer" says Binger.

    Binger says a resource known as North Dakota Assistance can help people get access to these safety devices. The conference will also feature a keynote speech from former football player Ben Utecht on concussions and their effect on the brain.
