MINOT, ND — A man is in jail on a murder charge after his father was found shot to death in northwest Minot.

On Saturday, May 11, the Minot Police Department arrested 28-year-old Christopher Vickerman. The arrest happened just one day after officers responded to a call about a shooting and found 55-year-old Mark Vickerman dead with a gunshot wound.

The younger Vickerman is charged with class AA felony murder. He will be held at the Ward County Jail as authorities continue their investigation.

An autopsy is scheduled for later this week. No motive has been given.
