Police investigate shooting at south Fargo trailer park
Police say the shooter called 911 and confessed.
FARGO — One man was arrested Monday, July 4, after a shooting at a home in south Fargo.
Just after 7 a.m. at the Countryside Trailer Court, Fargo police said, the 22-year-old homeowner, Kyle Lovaas, called 911 to say he shot someone.
"As they came up to the door, they told him, 'Police department. Come out with your hands up.' And he walked out with his hand up and was all bloody and stuff," neighbor Jeb Bonsall said.
A 24-year-old was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. His name has not been released.
Lovaas is being held on suspicion of attempted murder.
Neighbors said the men are friends.
"Like an hour before, they were outside. It seemed like they were kind of laughing and joking around with each other," Bonsall said.
Detectives spent more than 12 hours collecting evidence at the home. Lovaas has lived at the home for several years, according to neighbors. They said they saw the friend there a couple times this week.
Bonsall said he would talk with Lovaas several times a day, adding Lovaas never caused any problems. He said Lovaas always remained calm, even when mad. The only time he ever raised his voice was when he told his dog to sit.
"Just a laid-back, quiet guy, always willing to lend a hand if I needed it, moving stuff or helping each other out," Bonsall said.
Police are not saying what led up to the shooting.
"It's mystery for them to figure out, I guess," Bonsall said.
