Details of Williston shooting still unknown

WILLISTON, N.D. — Williams County authorities say they believe a shooting this week was the result of a prior altercation between the two men involved, but they're unsure how the suspect and victim knew one another.

The sheriff's office has released few details in the shooting early Wednesday that sent a 42-year-old Idaho man to the hospital with two gunshot wounds. He is expected to recover.

A pickup truck believed to be driven by the male suspect was found in Bismarck later Wednesday, but the suspect was not in it.

The shooting happened in a makeshift recreational vehicle park outside of Williston. Authorities have not identified the victim or suspect.
