MOORHEAD, M.N. (Valley News Live) - UPDATE 10/17: The man responsible for a drive-by shooting in Moorhead is now in custody.

On Saturday, around 10:30 AM, due to the nature of the crime being investigated, the Red River SWAT team executed a search warrant at 4021 19th Avenue South, Fargo, ND, at the request of the Moorhead Police Department, in connection to the drive-by shooting that had occurred in 2300 block of 10th Street South, in Moorhead, on October 16.

20-year-old Tyminderious Hays of Fargo, ND was arrested. Hayes is currently being held at the Cass County, ND, Jail pending extradition to Clay County, MN to face Felony 1st Degree Assault and Drive-by Shooting charges.

(UPDATE)-- Police are searching for a gunman who sent another man to the hospital Friday night after a drive-by-shooting in Moorhead.

It happened just before 6 p.m. outside an apartment complex in the 900 blk of 23rd Ave. S. There’s no word on who the victim is or how he’s doing. The same goes for the gunman and a motive for the shooting.

Police are looking for a silver or blue Sedan that was seen driving off right after shots were fired. The man, who was shot, was taken to Sanford Hospital with a gunshot wound to his leg.

Thanks to the quick actions of some people inside the apartment, he was alert and responsive when officers arrived. One man says he just got off work and was hanging out with a friend in his garage.

They say they heard about five shots, followed by the sound of screeching tires.

“My buddy Jake jumped up and he was like, ‘that was definitely gunshots,'" witness Ethan Somers says. He came running out here and he was like, ‘Yup.’ He came over here and he took his belt. he put a tourniquet around his leg and all that. Nobody over there knew what they were doing. I’m guessing everybody was just terrified and frightened. Jake is more of a survival guy, so he knows that kind of stuff.”

Police believe the two knew each other and that there’s no danger to the public. Anyone with information about this drive-by-shooting should call the Moorhead Police.
