One person is dead following a homicide in Lincoln, North Dakota and a second person is being treated for serious injuries. The incident happened at the Lincoln Meadows Trailer Court this afternoon.
Around noon, a call came in of a domestic dispute. Upon arrival at the scene deputies quickly discovered this was instead a murder investigation. Authorities found a woman dead in the home. They are not releasing her age or identity. The woman is not the only victim -- three others are hospitalized, including a man authorities call a "person of interest".
Pat Heinert, Burleigh County Sheriff: "Further investigation showed there was a total of four people in the residence. One had escaped sometime during the situation and that's the person who went to a neighbor and actually called 911. The two other people appartently left in a vehicle and ended up at St. Alexius Medical Center seeking medical attenton," says Burleigh County Sheriff Pat Heinert."
Sheriff Heinert says the "person of interest" is actually the dead woman's son. Police are searching ditches of nearby roads for a knife believed to be used in the homicide. Heinert says they are also looking for other weapons. One of the two victims who voluntarily checked themselves in at St. Alexius has "serious" injuries. The sheriff says no one has been arrested and he does not expect any charges to come in the case until sometime tomorrow.
