FARGO – A Fargo man is in custody, accused of pulling a shotgun on family members Wednesday night as they grieved the loss of another family member who had recently died.

Ty Hongerhalt, 22, was arrested after police responded to a call of a domestic dispute to a home in the 400 block of Seventh Avenue South about midnight Thursday, Lt. Joel Vettel said.

Hongerhalt was among family members who police said had stayed up in the wake of the recent death of an elderly family member, according to Vettel.

At one point, Hongerhalt grabbed a shotgun from a closet and made threatening statements to family, police allege. Another family member pulled the gun away from him, Vettel said.

Hongerhalt also made threatening statements to family members about a knife, police say.

He was arrested on suspicion of terrorizing.
