JAMESTOWN, N.D. (Valley News Live) - Two people are facing charges after an alleged assault and shooting in Jamestown, North Dakota.

Police were called to 919 4th Avenue NE around 5:30 a.m. on March 1 for a report of a shooting. According to court documents, Terryl Getz admitted to officers that she had shot Jeffrey Nokleby, but said it was an accident.

Nokleby was transported to Jamestown Regional Medical Center by ambulance. Police say he was shot in the arm near his elbow area.

According to court documents, Getz says she picked Nokleby up from a Jamestown bar and he began to physically assault her, hitting her face and chest. Getz told officers the assault continued after they arrived at the residence.

Getz left the room and came back with a loaded handgun. Court documents state Getz fired one round into the ceiling and fired a second round at a table near Nokleby. She says she missed the table and hit Nokleby in the arm.

Getz is charged with reckless endangerment and Nokleby is charged with domestic assault. Nokleby pleaded not guilty during a court appearance on March 3. A no contact order has been put in place.
