Police have arrested a 31-year-old Fargo man in connection to the deadly attack, booking him into jail for conspiracy to commit aggravated assault. Police said additional arrests are possible, and they have identified a person of interest whom they want to interview as 25-year-old Larry D. Evans Jr., of Fargo.

A GoFundMe set up for the family of Camacho describes the 18-year-old as a "high school student working towards getting his H.S. diploma." The fundraiser says Camacho was "loyal & loving, but no doubt he could also be stubborn & opinionated."

"He felt his emotions very deeply, often more deeply than he would let show. But once he claimed you as his, he wouldn't let you go. He also had so many hopes & dreams for his future. He wanted the chance to make something of his life. To be someone. He LOVED music, he was ambitious, he was always on the move, always needed to be doing something," the GoFundMe said. 

As of Friday, the campaign has raised in excess of $5,000 to help cover funeral costs.
