Several people detained after report of shots fired in Moorhead

Police say they believe a shot was fired at one person in an apartment, but they were not hit.

MOORHEAD, Minn. (KVRR) – People in South Moorhead apartments are ordered to shelter in place, and others are evacuated, after a shooting.

Police responded to the 3000 block of 18th Street South around 8:50 this morning.

A man says he was shot at, but wasn’t hurt.

Authorities say the suspect’s apartment was found in the same complex the shooting happened in.

Officers found the suspect’s apartment and detained several men and women.

“With the short staffing that we have every day, our officers were able to actually control two buildings along with assistance from the Clay County Sheriff’s Office,” Moorhead Police Capt. Deric Swenson said.
No one has been arrested and police are working to find the gun.
