BISMARCK, N.D. — A Minot man shot in the stomach during the recent attack by a gunman in Las Vegas has undergone a fourth surgery.

Thirty-one-year-old Andrew Gudmunson’s father and the real estate company that employs him say he underwent an operation Sunday at a Las Vegas hospital to close the wound in his abdomen.

Gudmunson was shot on Oct. 1 in the attack by a sniper at a high-rise hotel that left 59 others dead and hundreds of others wounded. He’s breathing with the help of a ventilator, but doctors hope to soon remove it.

Gudmunson is a former University of North Dakota athlete, playing football and baseball.
