NEW TOWN, N.D. (AP) — Two benefit funds have been established for the families of four victims shot to death in New Town, on the Fort Berthold reservation.

Killed on Sunday were 64-year-old Martha Johnson and three of her grandchildren: 13-year-old Benjamin Schuster, 10-year-old Julia Schuster and 6-year-old Luke Schuster. A man who killed himself the same day as the shootings has been described as a person of interest.

The Forum reports the Schuster children grew up in the Warsaw area before moving to New Town earlier this year to live with their grandparents. Their parents are Kevin and Rebecca Schuster of Minto.

The benefit funds have been established at the KodaBank in Minto and at the Bethel Lutheran Church in New Town.
