Harwood Man Behind Bars After Standoff with Police

HARWOOD, ND — One man is behind bars after firing shots during an overnight standoff in rural Harwood.
Shortly after midnight, 57-year-old Steven Sorenson of Harwood called dispatch, wanting to talk to a deputy at the Cass County Sheriff’s office about a situation that happened earlier at a West Fargo bar.
Police responded and heard what they say was six to seven gunshots.
They set up a perimeter and say 10 minutes later, they heard at least three more shots.
It all ended with an arrest around 4:45 this morning.
“We had entered into the residence and made contact with him and taken him into custody without incident,” said Cass County Sgt. Tim Briggeman. “I won’t go into a lot of the details as far as exactly how that went down but again, it was a peaceful resolution. No injuries noted.”
Sorenson was taken to the Cass County jail on reckless endangerment terrorizing charges.
A code red was issued to neighboring houses during the standoff.
