An FBI agent suffered a gunshot wound while investigating a drug case in McKenzie County on Monday night.
North Dakota US Attorney Tim Purdon says the special agent was wounded while part of an investigation of drug trafficking in and around the Fort Berthold Reservation called "Winter's End."
22 people were arrested in the spring as part of "Winter's End," and Purdon says several more were arrested on Monday.
He says the FBI agent who was wounded was executing a search warrant near Keene.
Purdon says the agent had only minor injuries and is back on the job.
He says during the execution of the search warrant in which the FBI agent was wounded Monday, a Keene man was arrested on several state charges.
42-year-old Randy Skarda appeared in Northwest District Court in Watford City today and had bond set at 100-thousand dollars for the five charges against him.
Those charges include two Class-B Felonies, two Class-C Felonies, and a Misdemeanor.
None of the charges allege that Skarda shot a federal officer.
Purdon says the investigation into the incident is continuing.
