Man arrested in fatal shooting at Fergus Falls

Police in Fergus Falls have made an arrest following the fatal shooting of a 29-year-old woman at a mobile home park last weekend.

Authorities say a 24-year-old Fergus Falls man is in the Otter Tail County Jail on possible manslaughter charges.

Investigators say 29-year-old Amanda Kemmer was shot in the chest during an exchange of a handgun at a home in the Lakeview Estates Mobile Home Park Friday about 10:30 p.m.

Police Chief Tim Brennan says the man in custody was attending a small gathering of friends at the home and was carelessly showing off a gun. Kemmer took the gun from Gray and was shot in the chest while Gray tried to retrieve it.

The Fergus Falls Daily Journal reports Kemmer was dead when police arrived at the home.
