BISMARCK, N.D. — A Bismarck man is accused of shooting a 21-year-old man twice in the chest and once in the leg.

Twenty-one-year-old Benjamin Williams is charged with attempted murder and tampering with evidence. He faces a maximum prison sentence of 25 years. Bond is set at $500,000.

The victim told police he was seated in a vehicle on a Bismarck street Tuesday morning when Williams pulled up behind him and got out of his vehicle carrying a gun. The victim says he got out to confront Williams and was shot three times.

Police say Williams later sent someone to look for evidence at the crime scene.

Williams was arrested about 6:25 a.m. Wednesday after a manhunt that began about noon on Tuesday.

Court documents do not list an attorney for Williams.
