(Fargo, ND) -- The North Dakota Attorney General's Office is planning on holding a press conference Wednesday, July 19th at 3:00 p.m. inside Fargo City Hall.

The conference will focus on the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation's detailed look into Fargo Officer Zach Robinson's use of force against suspected shooter Mohamad Barakat. The exchange of gunfire resulted in Fargo Officer Jake Wallin's death, along with critically injuring officers Tyler Hawes, Andrew Dotas, and bystander Karlee Koswick. Officer Robinson is lauded by Fargo Police Chief David Zibolski as a hero for his actions.

"As all of the details become available, I think everyone is going to really recognize the significance of [Robinson's actions]," said Zibolski. 

WDAY Radio will cover the press conference live on air, our website, and social media channels.
