Police are looking for a suspect in a homicide in Fargo


WDAY: FARGO — Police here are looking for a homicide suspect after a man died of a gunshot wound Friday, Sept. 21.

Christopher B. Riley has been identified as the suspect, said Deputy Chief Joe Anderson in a news release.

Riley remains at large. It’s unknown whether he’s still in the Fargo-Moorhead area, police said.

At 11:23 a.m. Friday, there was a suicide call to an apartment at 2302 17th St. S., and the caller told dispatchers that a man shot himself. But when officers arrived, the caller was not at the apartment and a gun was found, police said.

An initial investigation determined the death was a homicide, not a suicide. Police then determined Riley was the suspect.

He’s described as a white man, 5-foot-11, weighing about 185 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes. He’s believed to be driving a gray 2003 Dodge Ram pickup with a gray topper and Minnesota plates 400NTE.

If Riley is seen or if the truck is spotted, police ask that the public not approach him and call 911 to alert law enforcement.
