The Ellis County Sheriff’s Department has released a statement with information regarding a welfare check at a residence near Fargo Saturday where a sheriff deputy was shot in the left leg. Deputy Dave Thomas was treated and released from the hospital and they say he is in good spirits as he recovers at home.
The press release says the suspect, whose status was unknown earlier Sunday, never made it out when the house caught on fire during a standoff.
An investigation is still ongoing.
