UPDATE: Suspect in custody after shots fired in Northwest Minot

MINOT, N.D. - UPDATE: One suspect is in custody after shots were fired in Northwest Minot.

The suspect was transported to the hospital for care, but it is uncertain if the injuries were self-inflicted. No other major injuries have been reported.

The incident prompted school officials to lockdown Ramstad Middle School for a short period of time. The city says there was no immediate threat to the public, and the lockdown was just a precaution.

Because police were still blocking traffic near the trailer court as school let out, parents were asked to use an alternate route to pick up their children this afternoon.

Police are still restricting traffic into Northland Trailer Court, but the other streets previously blocked off have now reopened.
