     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Minot woman on trial for allegedly killing a man a year ago testified in her own defense, saying she fired three times to protect herself. Thirty-nine-year-old Kommika Gregory is accused of killing 58-year-old Ronald Thompson on Nov. 16, 2017, at a Minot residence. Police have said Thompson tried to intervene in a dispute between Gregory and her ex-boyfriend. Gregory took the stand Tuesday and said Thompson had blocked her path, threatened to shoot her, shoved her, and kept coming after her. Gregory faces a murder charge that could land her in prison for life without parole if she's convicted.


     MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - Mandan police say one of its officers was involved in a shooting. Deputy Chief Lori Flaten says the suspect was taken to a hospital for treatment Tuesday afternoon. Police did not provide additional details about the shooting. The officer is on standard administrative leave. The North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation will review the shooting which happened near Dan's Supermarket and Centre, Inc. The Bismarck Tribune says the last officer-involved shooting in Mandan was in April 2017.


     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Police have identified the man whose body was found in front of a house in Grand Forks. Twenty-five-year-old Tyler Rodriquez, a local resident, was found deceased Tuesday morning. Police say a cause of Rodriquez's death has not been determined and the investigation continues. Officials haven't said if there are any signs of foul play.


     MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - Police say a naked man who was high on drugs climbed into the holy water font during Mass at a church. Officers in Mandan, which is just across the Missouri River from Bismarck, were called to Spirit of Life Catholic Church at around 9 a.m. Tuesday and arrested the 21-year-old man on drug, criminal mischief and indecent exposure charges. Formal charges were pending.
     Deputy police Chief Lori Flaten says the man had been at the church earlier trying to bless people and was asked to leave. She says he later returned, stripped, entered the fountain, and then walked down the aisle performing a lewd act. Flaten says preschool children were at the service. She says the church plans to drain, sterilize and re-bless the holy water.


    BISMARCK, N.D. - State School Superintendent Kirsten Baesler says the process of filling two openings on the state Board of Higher Education is changing because of the resignation of Greg Stemen, the board's vice chairman.

    Stemen and fellow board member Nick Hacker were both serving four-year terms that ended June 30. However, Stemen resigned September 27th, and Gov. Doug Burgum must appoint someone to serve the time left on Stemen's term. Following that, the governor must choose two members to serve new four-year Board of Higher Education terms, both of which begin July 1st.

    Hacker is eligible to be appointed to a second four-year term. Stemen would also have been eligible, had he not resigned. The person chosen to serve out Stemen's term will be eligible for appointment to a full four-year term once the "short" term ends.

    The application deadline falls at 5 p.m. Nov. 21. The nominating committee will meet soon afterward to choose SBHE candidates to forward to the governor. Board of Higher Education appointments must be confirmed by the North Dakota Senate.
