Shoot Out At The O-K Corral -- May 17, 2016


May 22, 2016: not much news/updates on perhaps one of the biggest "crime" stories coming out of Boomtown so far this year. Data points:
  • three guns
  • up to 16 shots fired
  • the two fatalities were in their young 20's; originally from Ohio
  • male / female questioned but not detained
  • self-defense "has not been ruled out"
  • not a home invasion
Original Post
Williston Herald reports:
  • in new apartment complex northwest Williston
  • one man, one woman being questioned
  • two men shot and killed
  • three guns found at the scene
  • 11:20 a.m.: multiple 911 phone calls received; shortly thereafter local police arrive
  • 1:00 p.m. NDBCI on-scene
  • 1:30 p.m. everyone accounted for; no gunman on the loose
  • not sure if guns belonged to victims (both out of state) or to individuals who lived in the apartment
  • Later: not believed to be home invasion
The way the story reads suggests the victims did not live in the apartment: "... unsure whether [the guns] belonged to the victims or the people who lived in the apartment.
