FARGO - Fargo police are searching for two shooting suspects.

Police say just before 2:30 Saturday morning officers were dispatched to the Bell Bank parking lot off North Broadway.

When officers arrived they found someone who had been shot in the butt.

The injury is believed to be non-life threatening.

Witnesses say the shooter was a Black man between 25-30 years old.


He may have gotten away in a red vehicle.

Shortly after midnight officers were called to the 3300 Block of 35th Avenue South.

The caller stated there was a shooting and people were leaving the scene.

Moments later a 39-year-old man arrived at a local hospital with a gunshot wound to the arm.

A suspect description was not provided by police.

Anyone with information about either shooting is asked to call Fargo police.
