Mandan Shooting Suspect Charged
It was a crazy story that happened over the weekend but it is closer to getting resolved.
Mandan Police have in custody the 16-year-old boy charged with shooting a 27-year-old woman in her back as she was driving away. It took a couple of days but witnesses identified the suspect running away from the scene and the manhunt had produced the suspect who is being charged with 2 counts of aggravated assault, attempted murder, reckless endangerment and delivery of an imitation controlled substance.
Here's the original from KFYR-TV:
