DICKINSON, N.D. - Charges have yet to be filed in what the Stark County sheriff said was an alcohol-related and likely accidental shooting involving two brothers at a rural residence west of Dickinson on Jan. 12.

Nathan Alan Land, 27, allegedly shot his brother, Jacob Alan Land, 26, in the torso area with a 9mm glock pistol at about 3 a.m. in the home where the two were living together, Sheriff Terry Oestreich said.

“We have no witnesses. Just statements,” Oestreich said, adding the official statement from Jacob Land was taken last week while he remained hospitalized at CHI St. Alexius Medical Center in Bismarck. “Right now, it appears that this is going to be an accidental shooting. Things are pretty well pointing to accidental, and it looks like alcohol was certainly a factor in this incident.”

Oestreich didn’t have an update about Jacob Land’s condition and said the investigation is ongoing.
