WEST FARGO — A juvenile was hospitalized after they were the unintended victim of a shooting on Sunday, March 21, according to the West Fargo Police Department.

On Sunday night, police responded to a report of a shooting around 8:50 p.m. in the 1500 block of 11th Avenue East where they found the juvenile with a gunshot wound, police said. The juvenile's name and age have not been released.

An investigation found that the shooting was not random and involved a property owner being targeted because of an altercation earlier on Sunday, according to police.

Investigators said the juvenile victim was not the intended target in the shooting. The victim suffered injuries that were not life-threatening and was taken to the hospital where they were last known to be in stable condition, police said Monday.

The shooting remains under investigation, and police continue to follow up on leads and conduct interviews.
