MOORHEAD, MN (Valley News Live) - Update: (10/27/19)

On Saturday at about 9:45 pm, Moorhead Police Officers were dispatched to a business in the 2200 block of 14th Avenue South.

Police say an employee called 911 to report someone broke down the door and "held him up" with a gun.

Officers arriving on scene saw a vehicle driving away but were not in position to catch up to it.

Officers say they spoke with the complainant who said he knew who the man was that showed up and described an ongoing property dispute between them.

This investigation is on-going.
