FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A benefit fund has been set up for the family of a man suspected in the shooting death of a Fargo police officer.

Officer Jason Moszer died Thursday of a single gunshot wound during a standoff at a house near downtown Fargo. The suspect, Marcus Schumacher, was found dead in the house but police have not said whether he died of a police bullet or shot himself.

Officers were initially sent to the scene after Schumacher’s son called dispatchers and said Schumacher had fired a gun at his mother, Schumacher’s wife.

A group coordinating the fundraising effort says it’s also accepting donations of gift cards and non-perishable food items.

Fargo Police Chief Dave Todd has urged community members to reach out the Schumachers, saying it’s “the right thing to do.”
