GOLDEN VALLEY, N.D. (AP) - A Mercer County man escaped serious injury when he was shot three times by intruders in his home.
Sixty-year-old Jeff Gegelman, of rural Golden Valley, was shot in the chest and twice in the arm Sunday afternoon by one of two men who entered his farm home. He was treated at a Bismarck hospital and released.
Gegelman returned fire when he was shot, and wounded one of the three men who had driven into his farm yard. Authorities arrested the man while he was driving himself to a hospital in Hazen.
He was not immediately charged, and Mercer County Sheriff Dean Danzeisen says the other two suspects remain at large.
