When law enforcement arrived, the structure was fully engulfed in flames and they found the remains of one man with a bullet wound in the head.

Lockman assisted Gunning and Belcourt by waiting in the car and driving them away from the scene.

Lockman and Gunning were arrested in Minot, North Dakota, with Belcourt arrested in Mahnomen County a few days later.
