Dilworth man jailed in alleged BB gun attack

A Dilworth man was arrested Thursday, suspected of forcing his way into an ex-girlfriend’s apartment Wednesday night and shooting her new boyfriend with a pellet gun, Moorhead police said.

Jeremy Palmer Pederson, 24, was arrested about 9:30 a.m. at 603 1st Ave. N.W. in Dilworth. He is expected to be charged with making terroristic threats and with burglary, stated Moorhead Police Lt. Tory Jacobson in a news release.

Police responded about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday to 1929 18th Ave. S., where Pederson allegedly shot a black BB pistol at the victim four times, Jacobson said. The pellets broke the skin of the victim’s chest and back. He was treated and released at Fargo MeritCare.

Pederson is being held in the Clay County Jail awaiting formal charges.
