Plaza Azteca 051922

FARGO, N.D. (KVRR/KFGO) — Plaza Azteca, the Fargo restaurant where a woman and her baby were shot on Wednesday, is reopening on Friday.

The restaurant was closed today in honor of the victims and its workers.

They are hosting a fundraiser Friday with 50% of the proceeds going to the shooting victims, who are recovering in the hospital.

Fargo Police Chief Dave Zibolski said in an interview with KFGO that a misdemeanor domestic violence warrant issued last month for the shooter had expired.

Officers have 12 hours to make the arrest after they receive a report of a the incident.

If law enforcement doesn’t locate the suspect within that timeframe, they can refer the matter to the State’s Attorney for consideration of a warrant.

In this case, that warrant was issued on April 25, 2022, after which time the suspect was arrestable.

24-year-old Malik Gill was wanted on an active warrant issued by the Cass County State’s Attorney on April 25.

Zibolski said Fargo police, along with state and federal investigators are working to determine where Gill got the handgun he used in the shootings.

He had a previous felony conviction in Moorhead.

Gill died Wednesday by a self-inflicted gunshot wound following a chase that ended south of Hawley, Minnesota.
