2:45 p.m. Tuesday, March 30 Update: 

The Tuesday, March 30, 2021 aggravated assault is not related to the Sunday, March 21 or Monday, March 22 shootings. The West Fargo Police Department has not arrested anyone in relation to this incident. This incident was targeted to the individuals involved and not the larger community. As more details become available we will share them but do not have more to offer at this time as it could potentially jeopardize the investigation.


At approximately 9:05 a.m., March 30, 2021, the West Fargo Police Department responded to a report of aggravated assault in the area of 9th St and 13th Ave. E. The suspect was seen running eastbound from the scene. Out of abundance of caution, the West Fargo High School, Willow Park Elementary School, Eastwood Elementary and L.E. Berger Elementary were put on a hallway closure. There was no direct threat to the schools or the students. As of now the hallway closure in the schools have been lifted.
