Man accused of shooting on Fort Berthold Indian Reservation in dispute over marijuana debt


BISMARCK, North Dakota — A man is accused of shooting and injuring a man on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation in a dispute over a drug debt.

James Lowe is charged in federal court with assault with a dangerous weapon. The incident happened on Nov. 5 in Parshall.

A federal affidavit says Lowe shot a man twice in the legs while he was in the shower and then hit him in the head with the gun. Lowe allegedly told the victim he would come back and kill him if he notified police.

The affidavit says the victim told police he had been distributing marijuana for Lowe and owed Lowe money.

Court documents do not list an attorney for Lowe, who has yet to appear in court.
