Woman Arrested after Reports of Shots Fired at Authorities in Morton County


UPDATE: The North Dakota Department of Emergency Services says protesters are now throwing molotov cocktails at law enforcement. 
They also report two fires have started on the Backwater Bridge. 
Authorities say a woman being placed under arrest pulled a weapon on officers and fired three times at authorities on the Highway 1806 bridge.
The woman was taken into custody without officers returning fire.
Authorities say a victim was shot in the hand in a separate incident after being run off a road by protesters.
An investigation is underway in that incident. Emergency services says the man shot was carrying a firearm when he was shot.
A spokesperson says there are other reports of gun fire in the area but says it’s possible they could be hunting related.
Sixteen people have been arrested but Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier says many more are en route.
