     WEST FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation is investigating a fatal shooting by police in West Fargo. Authorities say a man was killed by officers following a traffic chase and standoff Monday night. West Fargo Police Heith Janke says the pursuit began about 8 p.m. when the man refused to pull over for a traffic stop. Janke says the suspect rammed a squad car and eventually stopped in a driveway.
 
     KFGO reports the Red River Valley SWAT Team and negotiators were called to the scene. Janke says police believed the man had weapons in his truck. The chief says the suspect eventually got out of his vehicle and "presented himself as an imminent threat" to officers who shot him. West Fargo spokeswoman Melissa Richards declined to say whether the man was armed. He has not been identified.

    BISMARCK, ND - A Minot woman has been sentenced in a case of expoloitation of a child.

    U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland sentenced 29-year old Ashley Marie Moore Monday on charges of Sexual Exploitation of a Child; and Distribution of Images Depicting the Sexual Exploitation of Children. Hovland sentenced Moore to serve 25 years in prison for count one and 20 years in prison for count two, both sentences to run concurrently. Moore was also sentenced to 10 years of supervised release.

    Between July and October 2015, on three separate occasions, Moore videotaped herself sexually exploiting her 7 month old daughter while at her residence on the Minot Air Force Base. Moore sold the cellphone videos to a man she knew in Alabama, Leo Greene, for $50.00 each. The videos were later discovered on Greene's cell phone by family members after his death from cancer. The family members immediately reported the videos to law enforcement in Alabama.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A committee in the North Dakota Legislature has approved a new set of oil and gas rules, including regulations adding transparency to royalty statements. The Bismarck Tribune reports that the Administrative Rules Committee approved the new rules Monday.
 
     The transparency regulations will require oil companies to identify the amount and purpose of each deduction taken from royalty payments. It'll go into effect July 1, 2019, to give oil companies time to comply.
 
     Bruce Hicks is assistant director for the North Dakota Oil and Gas Division. He says royalty owners expressed frustration about the lack of information from oil companies about deductions taken out of royalty checks. Hicks says the deadline will also offer time to respond if legislators further address the royalty statement issue during the 2019 session.
