DILWORTH, Minn. — A 37-year-old man suspected of a November shooting at a Dilworth apartment building was arrested and booked in the Clay County Jail this week.

Authorities searched nearly a month for 37-year-old Dennis Scott Hackley, who was wanted on a second-degree assault charge for allegedly shooting Christopher Lussier.

On the morning of Nov. 12, police responded to a report of a shooting at an apartment building on Fifth Street Northwest, about a quarter-mile west of Dilworth Elementary School. According to police, officers found Lussier, 37, had been shot five times in the leg. An arrest warrant was filed for Hackley later that afternoon.

Details of Hackley's arrest have not been released, but two agencies are listed on the jail roster — the Moorhead and Dilworth police departments. The booking date for his arrest is Thursday, Dec. 10.
