Pastor: Boy feigned death to survive ND killings

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A pastor says 12-year-old Christian Schuster survived a deadly shooting in North Dakota by being covered by his slain brother and pretending to be dead.

The Rev. Grant Patterson told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he spoke to the young boy for a little more than an hour after his grandmother and three of his siblings were killed in New Town, which is on the Fort Berthold reservation.

Patterson says the boy called 911 after the killer left the house.

Officials say 21-year-old Kalcie Eagle, who committed suicide in front of police and has been called a "person of interest," lived a block away from 64-year-old Martha Johnson and her grandchildren.
