The name of the man who was killed was not released Saturday.
Police cautioned the public not to approach Toussaint if they see him. Instead, they're asked to call the Williston Police Department at 701-577-1212 or their local law enforcement agency.
The death is the fifth homicide in Williston so far in 2019.
In early April, Samuel Hamilton was arrested and charged with vehicular homicide after a crash that killed a 16-year-old Williston High School student. Later that month, the parents of a 1-month-old baby, Tank and Hannah McMillin, were charged with child abuse after the child died. Hannah McMillin's charge was later upgraded to murder.
Less than two weeks later, 57-year-old Jay LePage died following an altercation outside The Shop Bar in downtown Williston. Justin Crites was arrested about a month later and charged with manslaughter.
In late July, police arrested Steven Rademacher and accused him of running down a neighbor with whom he'd argued. He was charged with murder.
