Mandan Homicide Victim Died from Multiple Gunshot Wounds


Mandan Police say the man found dead in his home Monday died of multiple gun shot wounds.

Police are asking the public to look for items including guns and clothing that may have been dumped near the scene.

Macy Egeland reports.

28-year-old Alex Lansdon was found shot to death Monday around 10pm.

Police now say Lansdon was last seen alive Sunday night.

"We were able to establish we know the victim was alive at 11 pm on Sunday evening because we located him on video at a public place in Mandan," says Deputy Chief Paul Leingang.

Three guns are missing from the home--including an AR-15 and two handguns.

Police believe they could have been dropped near the scene of the crime.

"Everything's a possibility and we just don't want the public to overlook anything that could have been discarded along the curb or in their yard or their trash and the clothing could be discarded individually it could be in a pile in a bag," says Leingang.

Leingang says they don't have a suspect and no arrests have been made in the case.

He says he believes the public is not at risk--but says he can't rule anything out at this point.

"From our perspective it doesn't appear to be random but at the same time everybody needs to make sure their safe and use the common sense things," says Leingang.

Police have interviewed at least twenty people. Evidence collected at the scene has been sent to the State Crime Lab for further investigation.

Leingang says the AR-15 had been reported stolen last summer.

He says Lansdon got it back--but that it's missing again following the homicide.
