WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - The Williston Police Department on Monday identified two people shot Saturday, calling one incident domestic violence and the second an apparent suicide.

But authorities have not drawn a connection between the two Saturday incidents near the city’s downtown.

In a statement released Monday, police said officers responded around noon Saturday to a call about shots fired. The statement described the shooting as domestic violence. On the scene, police and paramedics treated 27-year-old Tiffany Foster for three nonfatal gunshot wounds before she was transported to a medical facility.

From the first crime scene, “investigations led” officers to a nearby residence where they heard a single gunshot. Inside, they found the body of 41-year-old Keith Foster, who had suffered what was believed to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The statement did not say whether or how the Fosters might be related.

While police have not publicly acknowledged any suspects or arrests in the shootings, on Saturday, Police Detective Dave Peterson told The Associated Press that “everything is safe and under control.”

Police said they are continuing to investigate.
