A Minot woman accused of shooting and killing a man a year ago has been convicted of manslaughter....

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Minot woman accused of shooting and killing a man a year ago has been convicted of manslaughter. Thirty-nine-year-old Kommika Gregory faced a murder charge in the death of 58-year-old Ronald Thompson on Nov. 16, 2017, at a Minot residence.
     A jury after five hours of deliberations Wednesday convicted her of a lesser crime of manslaughter, meaning she faces up to 10 years in prison rather than life without parole. She's to be sentenced Jan. 8.
     Authorities said Thompson tried to intervene in a dispute between Gregory and her ex-boyfriend. Gregory testified that she fired three times in self-defense after Thompson blocked her path, threatened to shoot her, shoved her, and kept coming after her.


     KILLDEER, N.D. (AP) - A Texas man is dead after a one-vehicle crash in North Dakota's oil patch. The Highway Patrol says 49-year-old Billy Galloway of Livingston, Texas, was driving a pickup truck that failed to negotiate a curve on a rural Dunn County road and rolled in the ditch about 9:15 p.m. Tuesday. Galloway died at the scene, about a mile north of Killdeer. A passenger in the pickup was taken to a Dickinson hospital with unspecified injuries.


     JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) - Jamestown police are searching for a suspect they believe to be armed and dangerous, and authorities have sent an alert to residents cautioning them not to confront the man.
     Major Justin Blinsky tells KQDJ radio that an officer tried to stop and arrest 25 year-old Levi Guthmiller on outstanding felony warrants Wednesday evening, but Guthmiller evaded capture by striking the patrol car and speeding away. The vehicle later slid off the road and Guthmiller fled on foot. A 21-year-old female passenger was detained for questioning, but Guthmiller was not immediately found.


     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Authorities have identified a body found at a Bismarck motel, but they're still investigating how the man died. Twenty-nine-year-old Stephen Claymore, of Bismarck, was found dead in a room at the Bismarck Motor Hotel on Sunday afternoon. The cause of death isn't yet known, but police say they don't suspect foul play.


     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The high school graduation rate for Native Americans in North Dakota is rising, but a significant disparity persists when compared to the overall student population.

     The Bismarck Tribune reports that data released by the state's Department of Public Instruction show that the 2017 graduation rate for Native American students was 67.3 percent, up from 65.2 percent in 2016. Findings also show that dropout rates have decreased for Native American students, which represent about 10 percent of the K-12 student population in North Dakota. The report found a gap in 2017 graduation rates between Native American students and their white counterparts by about 23 percent.
     State Superintendent Kirsten Baesler says the Native American graduation rate increase is a "good start," but that there's still "a lot of work ahead of us."


     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The federal prosecutor's office in North Dakota has been honored for its investigation into an international fentanyl-trafficking operation. The International Association of Chiefs of Police presented the award for preventing transnational crime to U.S. Attorney Chris Myers at its annual conference in Orlando, Florida.
     The case is dubbed Operation Denial. It has resulted in charges against 32 defendants, including two men from China accused of separately running chemical labs that produced fentanyl and other illegal opioids that were sold to Americans. The investigation began after an overdose death of a North Dakota man in January 2015. Myers says a team of agents and prosecutors have been working on the case for more than three years.


     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The first significant snow of the season has dumped as much as 17 inches in parts of eastern North Dakota. School buses ran 2 hours late this morning as drivers delt with the slippery roads. The National Weather Service says the highest snow totals are in Finley at 17 inches, in Hannaford at 16.5 inches and a little more than 14 inches west of Hope. Grand Forks set a record snowfall for the date at 5.7 inches.
     The state Department of Transportation and the North Dakota Highway Patrol issued a "no travel advisory" for parts of eastern North Dakota on Wednesday evening due to snow and ice-covered roads and reduced visibility. The advisory included Jamestown, Valley City, Edgeley, Ellendale, Oakes, Cooperstown, Michigan, Larimore and surrounding areas. That advisory was lifted this morning.
