MINOT, N.D. (AP) — A 28-year-old man has been charged with attempted murder following two shootings in Minot this past weekend.

Authorities say Timothy Devon Lewis is charged in district court with attempted murder, eight counts of reckless endangerment and eight counts of terrorizing.

The Minot Daily News reports Ward County Deputy State’s Attorney Kelly Dillon said Monday during an initial court appearance that Lewis allegedly fired a gun directly at people and fired into an occupied residence where four children were present. The initial report of gunshots came in about 11:30 p.m. Saturday, while the second incident occurred at a different location about 12:15 a.m. Sunday.

Prosecutors say eight people are alleged victims of the shooting incidents, but there is no word on the extent of any injuries.
