Person of interest in ND February shooting death kills himself after shootout with law enforcement in Missouri

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The investigation into the shooting death of a North Dakota man will go on, despite the death of a person of interest.

Thirty-four-year-old William Galusha was found dead in his home near Milnor in February.

The autopsy report classified his death as a homicide.

Authorities have been looking for his roommate, 42-year-old Barry Wedge.

They say Wedge killed himself on Saturday in Missouri, after a chase and a shootout with officers trying to stop him.

The Highway Patrol says they had earlier interviewed him about the North Dakota case.
