DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) - A 29-year-old Dickinson man is facing an attempted murder charge after allegedly shooting his roommate in the chest with a shotgun in an alcohol-fueled incident.

Police Capt. Dave Wilkie tells KXMB-TV (https://bit.ly/1KZ5gOT ) that officers responded to the scene about 10 p.m. Wednesday and found a wounded 25-year-old man.

Wilkie says the man is in critical but stable condition in a Bismarck hospital. He wasn’t immediately identified.

Police identified the suspect as Zane Perry. Court documents do not list an attorney for him, and a home telephone listing could not be found.

The charge against Perry carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. He could enter a plea at an April 4 court hearing.
