A 44-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the shooting death of Gabriel Perez outside a McDonald's in Fargo on Sunday.

Original story

Police in Fargo have launched a manhunt to find the person responsible for a fatal shooting outside a McDonald's early Sunday morning.

Gabriel Perez, 20, of Fargo, was shot as he sat on the curb outside the McDonald's at 905 Main Avenue at 5:23 a.m. on Sunday when a dark Chevrolet Trailblazer pulled up, Fargo police said.

The driver of the Chevy shot Perez multiple times, with the 20-year-old running away before collapsing 100 feet down the road.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police are now seeking the public's help to identify and find the suspect, with surveillance footage showing him to be a light-skinned black, Hispanic, Native American or tan white male.

Police haven't been able to confirm at this stage whether Perez was targeted or was the victim of a random shooting.
