    STANLEY, ND ( KXNET ) — A man is now charged with murder for a deadly shooting that happened in Stanley early Friday morning.

    Around 12:13 a.m., May 24th, Stanley police officers and deputies from the Mountrail County Sheriff’s office were sent to the Mountrail County Jail to visit with a man who told them another man was dead. According to an affidavit, the man, Malcom Mayors, told investigators the incident happened in the 500 block of 2nd Street Southeast in Stanley. The man told investigators he thought he killed his friend and drove to the jail to get help.

    Following up on the report, police officers and deputies showed up at the home and found blood on the floor, a man dead and a bullet casing next to him.

    Investigators say Mayors told them he got off work and had eaten mushrooms and called a friend to come over, wanting to play virtual reality games. Mayors said the floor looked “wavy,” and that he wanted to get back to reality but couldn’t. He said he fired a shot, but couldn’t tell if the shot was real or fake.

    So far, the name of the victim has not been released.

    On Friday, a judge set Mayors bond at $1 million.
    Mayors will be back in court in July.

    The Stanley Police Department says there is no threat to the public at this time. They’re also asking the public to avoid the area of 2nd Street Southeast and 6th Avenue Southeast while the incident is being investigated.

    This is a breaking story. Check back for additional details as they become available.
