Police arrest Rochester man in connection to Moorhead fatal shooting

MOORHEAD, Minn. — A Rochester, Minnesota, man is in custody on a second-degree murder charge in connection to a fatal weekend shooting in Moorhead.

State and local law enforcement officers took Idris Haji-Mohamed into custody without incident in Rochester on Monday, Sept. 13, the Moorhead Police Department said in a Tuesday, Sept. 14, news release.

At about 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 10, police responded to a report of gunshots near 17th Street and 30th Avenue South in south Moorhead. When officers arrived, they found a bystander trying to treat a man who had suffered gunshot wounds.

Attempts to resuscitate the victim, later identified as 32-year-old Abdi Mohamed Abdi, were unsuccessful, according to police.

On Monday afternoon, a man who lives in the area where the shooting happened, but who declined to identify himself, said it was his understanding the shooting took place in a parking lot and the victim walked a short distance before collapsing.
