A Tuesday incident seven miles north of Belfield is under control, but the Billings County Sheriff's Department will not release much information about what happened over a 12-hour period.

The incident is under investigation, Chief Deputy Pat Rummel said. The BCSD, Stark County Sheriff's Office, Dickinson Police Department Southwest Tactical Team, North Dakota Highway Patrol, Billings County Ambulance and Belfield Ambulance responded to the scene.

All parties are accounted for, he said, adding the Bureau of Criminal Investigation is also reviewing the case. He would not comment on what happened or who was involved.
