God's grace does not come to people who morally outperform others, but to those who admit their failure to perform and who acknowledge their need for a Savior.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Minot police are treating a shooting death as a homicide and searching for a suspect. Authorities say officers who responded to the scene on South Main Street shortly before 8 a.m. today found a 58-year-old man who had been shot and killed at a residence. His name wasn't immediately released.
 
     Police have identified the suspect in the shooting as 38-year-old Kommika Gregory. They're searching for a blue 2011 Mazda CX9 that she was last seen driving. It has the license plate 060CAV. Anyone with information on Gregory or the vehicle is asked to call 911. Officers say do not approach the vehicle.
 
     Police say the woman and man were acquaintances. Authorities say the shooting was an isolated incident and they do not believe there is any danger to the public.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A former Standing Rock Sioux official sentenced to 30 years in prison on child sexual abuse charges is appealing his conviction. The Bismarck Tribune reports that the attorney for 55-year-old Robert Fool Bear Sr. says there was insufficient evidence and an error in jury instructions, among other complaints filed with the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
 
     Authorities say the former Cannon Ball district chairman repeatedly raped a girl over a four-year span. He was convicted in April on four charges. Fool Bear is housed at a medium-security federal correction institution in Pekin, Illinois. He is eligible for supervised release after 25 years.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Attorney General's office is investigating a Bismarck stem cell clinic. The Bismarck Tribune reports that the attorney general's Consumer Protection Division initiated a formal investigation of West 2 North Medical Solutions after receiving consumer complaints.

    The clinic has been offering stem cell injections for about a week and a half. Consumer Protection Division Director Parrell Grossman says there are concerns about alleged misrepresentations and questions over whether all available information is being given to potential patients. Grossman says officials "are initially very alarmed."

    Clinic leadership characterizes the concerns as unfounded and unfair. Dean Jones says there is a lack of information because no other clinics are offering this type of service in the area. Jones says he's passionate about the field and disappointed by the investigation.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota regulators say oil companies in September exceeded rules aimed at limiting the amount of natural gas burned off as a byproduct of oil production. The Bismarck Tribune reports oil companies are supposed to capture 85 percent of natural gas or limit flaring to no more than 15 percent.

    State Mineral Resources Director Lynn Helms says companies flared 17 percent of production in September. He says the flaring of 323 million cubic feet per day was caused by unanticipated maintenance problems with pipelines, natural gas processing plants and compressor stations. Helms says the increased flaring likely won't lead to regulators requiring companies to restrict oil and natural gas production.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Officials are preparing to dedicate Ward County's $38 million jail expansion. A ribbon-cutting ceremony is set Monday, with public tours scheduled the following Monday, Nov. 27. The expansion project increased jail capacity from 104 beds to 300 beds. Sheriff Bob Barnard has said the new facility won't be taking inmates until about mid-December, after staff training is complete. There is a small bit of landscaping to be done next spring. Remodeling of the existing jail also should be completed by spring.
