Casselton Shooting

CASSELTON, N.D. (KVRR) – A man who was detained following a fatal shooting early Monday in Casselton has been released from custody.

Cass County Sheriff Jesse Jahner says upon review of the evidence, including video evidence, witness statements, and conferring with the Cass County States Attorney’s Office, the person involved in the shooting was released pending further investigation.

A deputy responded to the Club 94 Bar and Grill just before 2 a.m. Monday. A man called dispatch and said that he had shot someone. The person who was shot was taken to a Fargo hospital, where he died.

Jahner says there is no reason to believe there are any safety risks to the public.   The names of the people involved are not being released at this time.

Jahner expects to release more information during a news conference Tuesday.
