Local News

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A Fargo police sergeant who accidentally shot himself in the hand is home after undergoing surgery at a Minneapolis area hospital.

Sgt. Matt Ysteboe (YIS’-tah-boh) suffered a rifle wound to his left hand on Friday. Ysteboe and other officers were responding to a call of a man firing a gun in downtown Fargo. He was giving other officers instructions when his rifle went off.

Fargo police say Ysteboe’s surgery went well. He was home in time to coach his son’s hockey team over the weekend.

KFGO-AM reports Ysteboe has more medical appointments next week, where he will learn more about his recovery and restrictions he might face.

Ysteboe was the night shift supervisor on Friday. He has been with the department since 2001 and was promoted to sergeant in 2016.
