FARGO — In delivering a forceful message on behalf of his family, the father of slain Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind said he was angry with law enforcement and the legal system for acquitting a co-defendant in his daughter's murder.

FARGO — In sharing their concerns at a school safety forum, both parents and educators in Fargo-Moorhead said that while an active shooter is their greatest fear, it's the daily violence in classrooms and lack of mental health resources that needs to be addressed.
