At 3:45 a.m. on Tuesday, local law enforcement was asked to help on a traffic stop on Interstate 94 westbound from Absaraka by two Cass County Sheriff’s Deputies.
The deputies had pulled over Kelly James Davis, 36, of Bend, Ore., on I-94. Police in Hutchinson, Minn., had issued an ‘attempt to locate’ on him after he allegedly shot rounds from a semi-automatic hand gun into the ground and air in a dispute with another man in Hutchinson. Davis left the scene in a white, Ford Shelby Mustang and law enforcement received word he was heading west to Oregon.
At 2:06 a.m. Tuesday, law enforcement traced a cell phone call to a tower in Dalton Minn., and determined Davis was heading into North Dakota on I-94. Officers were told to be wary of the suspect because he has military training, combat experience, may possibly have multiple weapons and may be under the influence of narcotics.
