Three people cited for conspiracy to commit murder

Three people have been cited for conspiracy to commit murder, following an attack Sunday morning with a baseball bat on an adult in southern Burleigh County.

Authorities report around 12:41 Sunday morning, the three went to an area known as McLean Bottoms. One of the group struck an adult in the head with a baseball bat before the three left the area.

Burleigh County Sheriff's Department deputies investigating the incident learned the assault was part of a "planned event," with people who were self-identifying as a gang.

Authorities apprehended the three allegedly involved in the assault and all have been transported to the Youth Correctional Center in Mandan.

Authorities say the investigation is continuing and additional charges are possible.
