The witness said they saw a pistol go up in the air and fire six to seven rounds.

Authorities confirm a pistol was involved, but did not have an exact description of the gun.

The witness also told WDAY some involved in the shooting got in a black SUV and drove away, while others drove away in a different vehicle.

Authorities are still searching for another group of interest.

While authorities are glad a witness could provide them with more information they urge people to seek safety when they hear gunshots.

"Well, anytime people are shooting at each other or in the city, that's a dangerous situation, stay in his own house, stay safe, and avoid windows if he knows shooting is going on outside," Fargo Police Sgt. Jarrod Wagner said.

Authorities do not know if anyone was shot and are still investigating.
