Williston Man Facing Attempted Murder Charge

(Williston, ND) — A Williston man accused of firing a gun while running from police earlier this month has now been charged with attempted murder. The incident began on August 17th, when a driver reported that Joshua Martinez had rammed him with his vehicle during a road rage incident, with Martinez speeding away when officers tried to pull him over. After hitting a spike strip, he allegedly ran into an apartment and fired a gun at officers, though nobody was hit. Martinez was taken into custody and charged with multiple crimes, with the new attempted murder charge being added this week. His trial is set for December 26th.
