A Minot man has been arrested following a report of gunshots last night....

    MINOT, ND - A Minot man has been arrested following a report of gunshots last night.

    Officers from Minot Police Department responded to the 300 Block of 27th Avenue Northwest around 9:45 pm Wednesday for a report of gunshots near the Polaris Park Apartments. An inverstigation led to officers finding empty casings and the arrest of 33-year old Marcus Hill. He was taken to Ward County Jail for Discharging a Firearm within the City Limits (B-Mis) and Reckless Endangerment (A-Mis). While processing the firearm as evidence it was learned that the gun was listed as being stolen out of Minot. Hill was additionally charged with, Possession of a Stolen Firearm (C-Fel) and Felon in Possession of a Firearm (C-Fel).

     No one was hurt in the incident.


     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Supreme Court has ruled that a Minot man convicted of killing his ex-wife can have contact with the two children he had with her. Richie Wilder Jr. is serving life in prison on a murder conviction in the November 2015 death of 30-year-old Angila Wilder, who authorities say was stabbed 44 times in the neck, face and chest.
     Wilder last fall appealed a judge's order prohibiting him from having contact with the 6-year-old and 12-year-old children while they're still minors. The Minot Daily News reports that the Supreme Court on Wednesday overturned the lower court's order. Justices also rejected Wilder's request for a new trial.
     Wilder's current wife, Cynthia Wilder, is awaiting sentencing for helping him plan the killing of his ex-wife.


     WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - A Georgia man has been sentenced to serve 8 years in prison in North Dakota for infecting two women with HIV, the virus that can lead to AIDS. KXMC-TV reports that Angel Rodriguez, of Jonesboro, Georgia, entered an Alford plea in Williston on Tuesday to a felony charge, acknowledging there's enough evidence to convict him. The court treats it like a guilty plea. Authorities say Rodriguez did not tell the women that he was HIV-positive before having unprotected sex with them, and both women became infected.


     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Documents show a man sentenced to death for killing a University of North Dakota student more than a decade ago offered to plead guilty to avoid the death penalty. KFGO obtained the previously undisclosed 2006 letter in Alfonso Rodriguez Jr.'s case from federal court files this week.
     Rodriguez's attorney, Richard Ney, wrote to then-U.S. Attorney Drew Wrigley that the plea would spare pain for Rodriguez's family and that of his victim, Dru Sjodin of Pequot Lakes, Minnesota. The offer was rejected and Rodriguez, of Crookston, Minnesota, was convicted later that year of kidnapping and killing Sjodin. His appeal of his death sentence is still working its way through the courts.
     Then-U.S. Attorney Drew Wrigley declined to comment on the letter. But he told KFGO in a 2015 interview that he stands behind his work on the case.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Deadly bacterial pneumonia among bighorn sheep in the western North Dakota Badlands spread to three previously unaffected herds last year. That resulted in the smallest estimated population in more than a decade - 265 animals.
     Big game biologist Brett Wiedmann says the Game and Fish Department is still confident this year's fall hunting season will be held, though possibly with fewer licenses.
     The outbreak of disease four years ago prompted Game and Fish to cancel the fall hunting season in 2015 for the first time in more than three decades. The agency reinstated hunting in 2016 after the deaths tapered off but reduced licenses last year, from eight to five.
     A decision on this year's hunting season will be made in September, after a summer survey of the sheep population.
