Red Lake, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) - The FBI is reporting that one person has died as the result of a triple shooting on the Red Lake Indian Reservation in Northern Minnesota.

The FBI is continuing its investigation of a shootout involving five to six men that occurred at approximately 3:12 p.m. Wednesday on the Red Lake Indian Reservation.

The shooting occurred in a residential neighborhood near the Red Lake Fisheries in Redby.

The incident appears to be the result of a long standing feud between the two groups of men involved.

Both groups of men were in vehicles when the shooting occurred.

22 year old Julian Keith Demarrias, of Redby, was taken to Red Lake Indian Health Services, where he later died from injuries that he suffered during the shootout. Jerrick Demarrias and Orland Spears, both 19 years-old, remain in critical condition.

Multiple rifle and shotgun rounds were fired during the shootout.

Authorities have identified the alleged shooter, who they are still looking for as Donald Clark Jr., also known as Don Juan. They are also still searching for Cruze White.

Evidence indicates the suspect(s) may be heavily armed.

According to witnesses, the incident involved a black 1998 black GMC Yukon with Red Lake plates 19287.

The FBI is investigating this matter jointly with the Itasca County Sheriff’s Office, the Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office, the United States Marshall Service, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, the Red Lake Police Department, and the Headwaters Safe Trails Task Force.

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call the FBI at 612/376-3200, or any of the other investigating agencies.
