FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - The man accused of shooting a couple and their unborn child last November has pleaded guilty in the case.

36-year-old Anthony Reese is charged with two counts of intentional murder, and one count of murdering an unborn child after police say he opened fire at a factory in north Fargo on Nov. 17, 2021. The deadly shooting happened just minutes after co-workers say Reese was fired from Composite America located at 401 27th St. N. Co-workers say Reese was escorted out of the building, but gunshots rang out moments later after documents say Reese grabbed a firearm from his car.

43-year-old Richard Pittman and 32-year-old April Carbone, who was 35-weeks pregnant, were killed.

“Anthony (Reese) had said he wanted to make Richie suffer, so he shot his unborn baby. I just don’t understand taking innocent lives over nothing,” Kayla Lancor, a good friend of the victims told Valley News Live in an interview after the shooting.

A sentencing date has not yet been set.
