Bail set for man accused of shooting up residence

DICKINSON, N.D. – Bail is set at $15,000 for an Adams County man accused of shooting up a residence near Reeder over the weekend.

No one was hurt, but authorities allege Arthur Sorby fired nearly 40 rounds in the home where he and two other people were living about 4:30 a.m. Saturday. He faces several charges including terrorizing and has asked for a public defender.

Sheriff Gene Molbert told The Dickinson Press that the alleged shooting began when Sorby and a female resident got in an argument. A 16-year-old boy also was in the home at the time.

Molbert said the female barricaded herself in a bedroom but eventually got outside and drove to another farm, where she called for help. Officers arrested Sorby a few hours later without incident.
