Timothy Lewis, Minot, charged with attempted murder, terrorizing, reckless endangerment; Anthony Davis charged with terrorizing after shooting incidents

A 28-year-old Minot man has been charged with attempted murder following two shooting incidents in Minot on Saturday night, according to a press release from the Minot Police Department.

Timothy Devon Lewis is charged in district court in Minot with attempted murder as well as eight counts of reckless endangerment and eight counts of terrorizing. He is being held at the Ward County Jail.

Ward County Deputy State’s Attorney Kelly Dillon said Monday during his initial appearance in court that Lewis allegedly fired a gun directly at people and fired into an occupied residence. There were four children in the residence at the time. Dillon said the state could ask to have Lewis designated a dangerous special offender, meaning an enhanced sentence on the attempted murder charge. He could face a mandatory minimum two year sentence because a weapon was used in the crime.

The initial report of gunshots was at an address in the 1500 block of Terrace Drive at 11:32 p.m. on Saturday, according to police, and a second report of shots fired in the 2200 block of Landmark Circle was made at 12:15 a.m. on Sunday.

Eight people are listed as alleged victims of the shooting incidents.

Judge Gary Lee set bond at $250,000 cash or corporate surety for Lewis and set a preliminary hearing date for May 30.

A second man, Anthony Lee Davis, 26, of Minot was charged with terrorizing, false information to law enforcement, possession of ecstasy, and possession of firearms by a convicted felon after police received a report at 1:11 a.m. that Davis had pulled a gun on a resident in an apartment building in the 1500 block of 12th Street NW. Police investigated and determined that Davis had fled from the scene of the original shooting and had fired rounds at Lewis after he fired on the residence. Davis is also being held at the Ward County Jail.

Lee set bond for Davis at $150,000 cash or corporate surety.

No one was injured in any of the incidents.
