Ryan Kitch - Fargo Police Department FARGO – Two suspects were arrested Sunday after a drive-by shooting in South Fargo.

Oscar Kayee, 26, of West Fargo, and Ryan N. Kitch, 21, were arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit robbery and conspiracy to commit attempted murder, both class A felonies, according to Fargo Police Deputy Chief Joe Anderson. Charges may be amended by Cass County State’s Attorney’s office at a later time.

After police arrived at the scene, 1500 East Gateway Circle South, they received a tip that two vehicles allegedly involved in a chase were headed toward the interstate in West Fargo. Both Fargo and West Fargo police officers stopped a red SUV near 9th Street East, and three suspects were arrested. A handgun matching bullet casings found at the drive-by shooting scene was found inside the car, Anderson said.

During interviews with the suspects, police discovered the shooting stemmed from a drug deal that went wrong at a South Fargo shopping center. One of the suspects pulled a gun on the victim, who was allegedly attempting to sell drugs, and a fight over the handgun ensued.

The driver was able to escape, and drove away in a white vehicle. The suspects gave chase, opening fire near East Gateway Circle.

The victim, unidentified at this time, was not shot, but did receive injuries, and was treated and released at a local emergency room.

One of the suspects confessed, Anderson said, and helped implicate a second accomplice. The incident is still under investigation. Both suspects could face up to 20 years imprisonment and a fine of $20,000, according to the North Dakota Century Code.
