ST. THOMAS, N.D.-Pembina County authorities are investigating an incident in which at least one man was shot and at least two guns were fired in a domestic dispute Thursday morning, Oct. 13.

Pembina County State's Attorney Ryan Bialas said his office is investigating the incident and conducting interviews, but no charges had been filed as of Thursday afternoon.

Pembina County Sheriff Terry Meidinger told WDAZ-TV that a man had returned to his home and found his wife and another man inside the home.

A fight broke out, Meidinger said, and the wife shot her husband. No names have been released.

Bialas said an arrest affidavit is being filed for one male subject, and he is in custody.
