Moorhead, Minn. (WDAY TV) - WDAY has learned police have found the gun involved in a Moorhead shooting, and the gunman could still be on the loose. 2 other people involved have been arrested.

33-year old Katterrius Reams of Fargo faces assault charges. 23-year old Josephine Guerrero of Moorhead faces drug charges. Police are asking for the public's help in finding 23-year old Geraldo Torres from Moorhead.

Police say the gunman fired multiple shots, hitting a car and mobile home. It all started after a road rage incident a few blocks from the scene. Police say Reams and another driver got into a fight.

Police say Reams and Torres then drove to Regal Estates. They say the other man in the fight followed their car, and after arriving, gun shots were fired.

The shooting has shocked homeowners in the neighborhood. No one was hurt, but some can't get over the thought of bullets flying, near their homes and children.

About half of the people say they heard the gunshots. Whether they did hear it or not, everyone says they're shocked it happened in such a family oriented neighborhood.

To escape things like gun violence, Emmanuel Martinez moved from Chicago to Moorhead, a perfect community to raise his 3 year old son.

EMMANUEL MARTINEZ - Lives near Shooting: "Everybody kept calling and emailing making sure everything was ok here."

Martinez says this incident forces him to 2nd guess this safe neighborhood.

EMMANUEL MARTINEZ - Lives near Shooting: "You kind of don't really want to believe it and then when more and more people tell you about it you got to kind of realize hey this is happening you know."

Neighbors tell us the eeriest part, is one of the bullets flew by some 20 homes before striking this one, at the end of the block. They say the owner and her two children were home.

BETTY WILLITS - Reacting to Gunshots: "Never think that something can't happen even though this is a quiet neighborhood."

DIANE MOORE - Reacting to Gunshots: "It only takes 3, 4 people to create problems and evidently we have that."

Still, no one seems to be concerned about something like this happening again.

EMMANUEL MARTINEZ - Lives near Shooting: "it's not really a place where things like that happen and law enforcement I think they know what they're doing and for them to react the way they did lets me know it'll be good sometime soon."

If you have any information to this case or the whereabouts of Geraldo Torres, police are asking you call the shift commander. That number is 701-451-7660.
