Law Enforcement Seek Public Assistance in Locating Possible Suspect
PIERRE, S.D. – South Dakota’s Department of Public Safety, Highway Patrol, and other law enforcement agencies are asking for the public’s help in the Sioux Falls area in locating a male who fired a gun into the air Wednesday morning (today).
At 8:30 a.m., the person was observed at an intersection in Sioux Falls. He approached someone and asked them if they were a government or state employee. When the person said they were not, the unknown male said he was looking for someone in law enforcement or state government to shoot and then fired a shotgun into the air.
The individual is driving a brown/tan Ford F250 pickup with fire fighter plates and South Dakota license FF0311. The vehicle was reported stolen from Sioux Falls and was last seen northbound on Reid Street near the viaduct in Sioux Falls.
The public is urged to exercise caution and contact law enforcement immediately if they have any information that might pertain to this case.
