Photos, description of suspect released in Sunmart shooting

FARGO – Fargo police this afternoon released surveillance photos and a description of the suspect in a Sunday robbery and shooting at a Fargo Sunmart that left a store employee, Josh Kleckner, wounded.

The suspect is described as a white male, about 50 years old, with brown hair and scruffy facial hair with a little gray mixed in.

The suspect’s height is estimated to be 5 feet 10 inches and his weight to be 180-200 pounds.

The man was dressed in blue jeans, a black T-shirt and a long black jacket that had a unique white collar and liner. He was also wearing a camouflage hat that had a short brim and flaps over the ears.

Kleckner was listed in satisfactory condition at Sanford Medical Center and was expected to leave the hospital today, hospital spokesman Darren Huber said.

Kleckner was shot twice during a struggle with the armed robber, who entered the store at 724 North University Drive around closing time at 11 p.m. Sunday, police said. The suspect fled the store on foot.

No customers were inside the store at the time, and another employee who was present wasn’t injured, police said.
