WILLISTON, N.D. -- A man fired at Williston police officers, who returned fire, wounding the man, who eventually surrendered this afternoon.

Police responded to 407 W. Broadway in Williston after a woman called 911 at 2:34 p.m. to report that a gunshot had been fired, according to Williston Police Chief Jim Lokken.

As police responded, a subject fired at officers, who returned fire. Officers then made phone contact with a man, who indicated he had been wounded, Lokken said.

The man agreed to surrender and was taken to Mercy Medical Center in Williston with two gunshot wounds.
