Pendleton received gunfire injuries and is currently being treated at Altru. The female in the apartment died of her gunshot injuries.

One deputy is in stable condition at Altru with non-life-threatening injuries and one Grand Forks Police officer did not survive.

ORIGINAL: Grand Forks police confirm to Valley News Live they’re currently at the scene of a shooting where four people were shot, including two officers, and one woman is dead.
