Police Officer Has Life-Threatening Injuries After ND Shooting – ABC News
A police officer has life-threatening injuries after being shot during a standoff in North Dakota, police say.
Law enforcement officials responded to a domestic dispute in north Fargo, where a suspect was barricaded inside a home and had been firing shots.
Fargo Deputy Police Chief Joe Anderson told Associated Press the incident began around 7pm, when a caller told dispatchers his father had possibly fired a gun at his mother.
Anderson says the caller and the suspect’s wife were able to leave the home unharmed. The suspect then began to fire multiple rounds out of the house.
It’s alleged one of these rounds struck 33-year-old Officer Jason Moszer.
He was taken to a medical facility with his family.
The standoff is ongoing.
Anderson says authorities haven’t made contact with the suspect.
