DICKINSON, N.D. -- A Dickinson man was shot in the head by his roommate on Wednesday afternoon after an altercation in a mobile home park in Dickinson.

Dickinson police responded to CHI St. Alexius Hospital in Dickinson around 3:10 p.m., where hospital staff reported a man was admitted to the emergency room suffering from an apparent small caliber gunshot wound to the head, according to a press release.

Joseph Goodby, 26 of Dickinson, was arrested by the Southwest Tactical Team after obtaining a search warrant for Goodby’s home.

After multiple failed attempts at contacting and calling out to Goodby, the officers stormed the residence and took him into custody without incident.

Goodby was questioned and later arrested for Class C felony reckless endangerment and Class C felony aggravated assault. He will be officially charged later.

The victim, a 26-year-old Dickinson man whose name hasn’t been released, was transferred to St. Alexius Hospital in Bismarck and is reported to be in stable condition.

Two firearms were seized at the scene, one of which is a small caliber revolver, which is believed to have been used in the shooting. The case remains under investigation.
