FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Officials around North Dakota are expressing grief and condolences in the wake of an incident in Fargo that left a police officer dead.

Thirty-three-year-old Officer Jason Moszer died Thursday of a gunshot wound suffered while responding to a domestic disturbance hours earlier. The suspected gunman also died. Authorities aren’t sure whether Marcus Schumacher died of a police bullet or shot himself.

Gov. Jack Dalrymple issued a statement offering prayers for Moszer’s family, Fargo police and the city itself. He said he will direct flags to be flown at half-staff statewide to honor Moszer on the day of his funeral.

Members of North Dakota’s congressional delegation also issued statements expressing condolences. Grand Forks Mayor Michael Brown said that nearby city’s police department stands ready to help Fargo police if needed.
