FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A convicted felon shot and wounded a 21-year-old woman and her 8-month-old child in an altercation that began Wednesday afternoon inside a crowded restaurant in south Fargo, police said. The suspect later killed himself.
The shooting took place at Plaza Azteca Mexican Restaurant shortly after 1:45 p.m., Fargo Police Chief Dave Zibolski said. The suspect, 24-year-old Malik Lamar Gill, of Moorhead, Minnesota, continued shooting at the woman when she ran outside while carrying the infant.

Gill fled the scene in a stolen vehicle. He was later involved in a police pursuit that ended when the vehicle crashed into some trees after driving over stop sticks.
Clay County Sheriff Mark Empting said Gill died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Gill was convicted of a felony in Minnesota in 2021. An active warrant was issued for him last month related to simple assault and domestic violence, police said.
