Ex-wife says man killed in Tioga camp shooting was race car driver

WILLISTON, N.D. — The former wife of a Texas man who was shot and killed at an oil patch crew camp in North Dakota says he was a race car driver and once donated a kidney to his sister.

Fifty-seven-year-old Gerald Schild of Katy, Texas, died on Saturday at the crew camp near Tioga. Police have arrested another Texas man on a murder charge in the shooting, which also injured a man from Arkansas. Authorities say all three worked for a Wisconsin-based pipeline company.

Schild's former wife, Cindy Adams, of Houston, tells the Williston Herald that Gerald Schild was well-liked in his community and that a racetrack plans to dedicate a race to him on Aug. 18.

Authorities have not released details about the circumstances of the shooting.
