MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) — An open house meant to discuss environmental impacts of a revised Red River diversion channel around the flood-prone Fargo-Moorhead area may have been the last chance for opponents to publicly air their grievances. The project has been on hold because it has not received a permit from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. But DNR officials have given favorable reviews to changes made in the so-called Plan B option. About 100 people attended the open house Thursday in Moorhead.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — St. Paul police have identified the student whose body was found in a University of Minnesota fraternity house. The body of 20-year-old Dylan Fulton was found at the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity house early Wednesday. Police say they do not suspect foul play in Fulton’s death.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The city of Minneapolis and a former police officer who shot and killed an Australian woman are asking a federal judge to put a $50 million lawsuit filed by her family on hold. Attorneys for Mohamed Noor, the city and others say civil proceedings should be delayed while Noor’s criminal case is pending. Noor is charged with murder and manslaughter in the July 15, 2017, death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond. Attorneys for Damond’s family say the criminal and civil cases can both move forward.
