Officer James Jabara shot a 32-year-old man while responding to a report of a suspicious person at a southeast Minot residence. The man was treated at Trinity Hospital. The North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation investigated the incident.

In addition, the Minot Police Department reviewed the shooting and determined Jabara’s actions were consistent with department policy.
