Ashley Hunter is charged with two counts of murder after allegedly killing two men in the past 24 hours on 12th Avenue north in Fargo.

KVRR’s Erin Lisch has more from the house where the second body was found.
Alison and TJ, authorities were called here just after midnight at 1122 12th Avenue North for a fire.

They didn’t find a fire but did find smoke and a dead body.
Neighbors knew something wasn’t quite right.
“I hear another siren, and they stop in front of our house and I was like I’m going to check it out. So we went outside and sure enough, there’s four firetrucks and however many they had, and ambulance. I mean we could hear the fire alarm going off still.”
Crime tape surrounds the scene of the rental property of the Catholic Diocese of Fargo.

The body of a 25 year old man was taken away this morning after being allegedly murdered by Ashley Hunter…he is now facing two counts of murder after possibly killing a 45 year old less than a mile away.
“Both of our deceased victims had injuries that were to some level of violence and certainly we haven’t released the type of injuries related to those in either case.”
Autopsies are being conducted on the two unnamed victims.
A swat team failed to find Hunter last night at a building in north Fargo.
He turned himself into police this morning, only a block away from the second murder.
Hunter has a violent past.
He’s been arrested before for stabbing another man during a sexual act with three people back in 2013.
There will be more information released tomorrow morning when police hold a press conference.
