FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) –
Friday’s tragedy has impacted the entire Fargo-Moorhead community, especially our first responders. Firefighters were on-the-scene for what seemed like a routine fender bender. They were about to leave the scene and let Fargo police take over, when a man opened fire. The shooter ended up killing a Fargo police officer, critically wounding two others, and injured a bystander.
The Fargo Fire Department jumped into life saving action once the shooter was neutralized by Fargo police.
Fargo Fire Chief, Steve Dirksen says the department requested ballistics gear after the mass shooting that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Adding, “If the cops are in there with their guns and their looking for things, we feel that that’s a good place for us to be, following behind them and get in and start treating people.”
