ST. THOMAS, N.D. (AP) - A St. Thomas man accused of shooting a man he found in his home with his wife is facing charges, while the wife will not be charged for shooting her husband.

Court documents show 31-year-old Brandon Thompson is charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault, terrorizing and reckless endangerment in the Oct. 13 incident. He could face up to 31 years in prison if convicted.

Authorities allege that there was an exchange of gunfire during the incident, and that Brandon Thompson shot the man visiting his wife, and Lora Thompson shot her husband.

Prosecutor Ryan Bialas tells WDAZ-TV that the charging decision came after a review of what happened.

Thompson’s attorney didn’t respond to an Associated Press request for comment. Thompson could enter pleas at a Nov. 30 hearing.
