On Monday, December 27, 2021, at approximately 7:00 am, Moorhead Police were dispatched to the 900 block of 23 Avenue South for a report of a man down in the street. Responding officers located an adult male victim with multiple gunshot wounds. Evidence on the scene quickly led officers to a nearby apartment, where numerous people were detained. The victim was transported by Sanford Ambulance to Essentia, where he is being treated for non-life-threatening wounds.

The investigation is still ongoing; however, the investigation shows there is no danger to the public, and this was not a random act. At this time, no one has been officially booked into custody or charged. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Red River Regional Dispatch Center at 701-451-7660 to speak with the on-duty Moorhead Police supervisor.
