BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Authorities have issued an arrest warrant for a Bismarck man accused of shooting an acquaintance in the chest during a dispute over money.

The Bismarck Police Department says authorities are looking for 39-year-old Cheston Pendleton, who is charged with attempted murder.

Police met the victim at the hospital. Initially, the 36-year-old Bismarck man said he was robbed by several men.
