Man sentenced to 20 years in downtown Fargo bar shooting
FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - A Cass County judge has sentenced a man to 20 years in prison for the shooting of three men at a downtown Fargo bar in Feb. 2021.
A jury found 44-year-old Brandon Grant guilty of all six counts against him, including attempted murder and aggravated assault in May this year.
Court documents say video footage taken inside the Bismarck Tavern show a man approach Grant with a phone, before that man punched Grant multiple times. The documents say a fight broke out, and that Grant pulled out a handgun and shot three men while they were being escorted out of the bar.
One person had wounds in each leg and one to his chest. Documents say another victim was hit in the face, twice in his leg and once in his foot. The third victim was hit with one bullet through his arm and chest.
Grant was eventually arrested after a month-long manhunt. A restitution hearing is set for mid-October.
