JAMESTOWN, N.D, - A Montpelier, N.D., man allegedly shot and killed his ex-wife Saturday afternoon, May 12, in southeast Jamestown, according to the Jamestown Police Department.

Jameston Chief of Police Scott Edinger said at around 3:55 p.m. Saturday the Stutsman County Communications Center received several calls reporting a shooting at 503 15th St. SE. Callers reported a man shot a woman in a vehicle in the parking lot of that apartment building and fled the scene in a white SUV.

Edinger said officers were dispatched to the location. Moments later the dispatch center received a call from Kevin Michael Hoff, 37, Montpelier, who stated he had shot his ex-wife and wanted to turn himself in. Officers took Hoff into custody at the Stutsman County Law Enforcement Center without incident.

A second group of officers responding to the scene of the shooting discovered a woman dead in a vehicle in the parking lot. The name of the victim is being withheld until family is notified. Edinger said the department is being assisted by the Stutsman County Sheriff's Office, North Dakota Highway Patrol and the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation. The investigation is continuing.
