FARGO, North Dakota — The Fargo Police Department is investigating a complaint about a comment an officer allegedly posted on Facebook.

Police Chief Dave Todd tells KFGO radio (http://bit.ly/1BHtKFP ) that the complaint alleges Officer Zach Messmer told a man to "do us all a favor and hang urself." The comment allegedly was made during online discussion about a shooting in Grand Forks that involved a University of North Dakota police officer.

Todd says the internal investigation will determine whether the complaint can be sustained and if so, what kind of discipline is appropriate.

Messmer did not immediately respond to an Associated Press request for comment.
