On Friday, July 15, 2023, a shooting occurred in Fargo, North Dakota, that left one police officer dead and two others critically injured. The suspect, who has not been identified, was also killed in the shooting.

The incident began at approximately 1:30 PM local time when officers responded to a report of a man with a gun in the area of 32nd Avenue South and 10th Street South. When officers arrived, the suspect opened fire on them. The officers returned fire, killing the suspect.

The three injured officers were taken to Sanford Medical Center Fargo, where one of them, Officer Jason Moszer, died from his injuries. The other two officers, Officer Ryan Braun and Officer Jared Theis, are in critical but stable condition.

The Fargo Police Department is investigating the shooting. They have not released any information about the suspect or a motive for the shooting.

This is the first time in Fargo’s history that a police officer has been killed in the line of duty. The city is in mourning, and flags are flying at half-mast.

The shooting has also raised concerns about gun violence in North Dakota. The state has one of the highest rates of gun ownership in the country, and there have been a number of high-profile shootings in recent years.

In the wake of the shooting, Fargo Mayor Tim Mahoney called for a national conversation about gun violence. He said, “This is a tragedy that should never have happened. We need to do everything we can to prevent this from happening again.”

The Fargo shooting is a reminder of the dangers that police officers face every day. It is also a reminder of the need for gun control in the United States.
