FARGO — The Fargo Police Department says it located the car that a man charged with attempted murder in connection to a shooting last weekend was traveling in.

However, the suspect remained at large as of 6:30 p.m. on Friday evening, Jan. 29, according to police spokeswoman Jessica Schindeldecker.

Investigators believed Oliver Tye, 21, of Fargo, was driving a white 2009 Hyundai Sonata with North Dakota license plates 091 DHL, according to a Friday afternoon news release. Tye, along with 28-year-old Jerome Wesseh Koon of Fargo, was charged Wednesday with felony counts of attempted murder, aggravated assault and reckless endangerment.

Prosecutors allege the two shot at each other Sunday morning shooting at The Arbors apartment complex, 718 23rd St. S. The incident report on Tye is not available to the public since he remains at large, but police confirmed he is a suspect in the case. Court documents detailing the charges say he used a pistol to shoot at Koon, Doris Koon and Ophelia Quiah.

A witness said a group of people tried to break into her apartment where she, her brother and two other males were before the shooting. Three males, including Tye, allegedly jumped out of her window and confronted Jerome Koon's group.

Quiah was seriously injured after being shot multiple times, according to court documents. She was taken to a hospital by Koon, police said.

Police said her injuries are non-life-threatening.

Jerome Koon allegedly pulled an AR-style semi-automatic rifle from a bag carried by Quiah as the shooting unfolded, court documents said. It's unclear who fired first, but shots were exchanged, according to court documents.

Tye and two others fled the scene, police said. It's unclear what, if any, injuries they suffered.

Doris Koon and Quiah have not been charged in connection to the shooting. Jerome Koon is in custody.

Police said there is a threat to public safety as they search for others involved in the incident.

"Tye should be considered armed and dangerous," police said in a news release Friday. "Please do not approach him."
