"There was a female who exited the residence who fell to the ground, (officers) saw that there was some injuries to her and they immediately started rendering aid," Grand Forks Lt. Jeremy Moe. "Paramedics were called to assist in that and she was transported over to Altru hospital."

Police then say 26-year-old Ahmed Mohamed Abdullahi surrendered without incident.

"On his own accord, (the man) exited of the building as well, and was contacted by officers and subsequently placed in the custody," Moe said. "He was cooperative upon exit with officers."

He was booked on charges of manslaughter, felon in possession of a firearm and theft of property.
