MINOT, North Dakota — A judge has refused to reduce bond for a Dickinson man accused in a July 2013 shooting in Minot that injured another man.

Charles Tomlin Jr. is charged with conspiracy to commit murder in the incident that injured Christopher Docher, who was shot twice in the neck but survived.

Authorities allege Tomlin had traveled to Minot with others seeking revenge for an acquaintance following a fight at a Minot bar. He was arrested in July, and could face life in prison without parole if convicted.

Tomlin was seeking to have his $100,000 bond lowered. KXMC-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1FIWRJG ) that Judge Gary Lee rejected the request Wednesday, citing in part Tomlin's criminal record of gang and gun violence in California.
