WEST FARGO -At least one person died in an incident Sunday night, at a mobile home on the 400 block of C Street in West Fargo, police confirmed.

Authorities responded to the incident just after 9 p.m. to 444 C St., which is directly across the street north of the West Fargo police station.

In a statement released Monday morning, Aug. 22, police stated that when officers arrived they found two victims, including a 45-year female who was pronounced dead at the scene Sunday night.

The woman suffered severe injuries, including a gunshot wound, the statement said.

Police also said a 55-year-old male was found at the scene and transported to the hospital with severe injuries, including a gunshot wound.

The man remained hospitalized Monday morning.

An autopsy is planned for the deceased woman.

A revolver was recovered from the scene, according to police.

The names of the individuals involved were not released early Monday.

West Fargo Assistant Police Chief Jerry Boyer said Sunday night that police responded to the scene on a report of one person down. When they arrived, they discovered a second person down, he said.

Neighbors said the situation may have arisen from a domestic dispute between a husband and wife who were separated and considering divorce.
