A 26-year-old man dressed as a gorilla was arrested after allegedly threatening people in an apartment building in Fargo early Friday morning.

At 12:30 a.m., Fargo police responded to the 2700 block of 8th Street North on a report of gunshots, a news release says. When they arrived, officers were told there was a man dressed like a gorilla carrying a machete. 

The gunshots turned out to be large fireworks, police said. And officers learned the suspect threatened people inside the building, saying he was going to blow it up.
