Two men face murder charges following a deadly shooting in Sioux Falls that also injured a man. Authorities also have two other suspects they believe are connected to the crimes.
Police arrested 18-year-old Brian David Anderson and 17-year old Trevor James Kruthoff in Watertown on Tuesday afternoon. Both are charged with 1st degree murder and attempted murder in the death of 20-year-old Jordan LeBeau and the shooting of LeBeau's father. They are also charged with robbery and aggravated Assault.
Two other suspects include 20-year-old Kevin Rice and 20-year-old Douglas Scholten.
"This is a pretty fluid investigation this morning," Sioux Falls Police Officer Sam Clemens said.
The search for Rice and Scholten led police, the Highway Patrol, the Minnehaha County Sheriff's Office and the DCI to Dell Rapids. Rice was taken into custody after 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday at an auto repair shop south of town. Authorities later found Scholten at a farm east of Dell Rapids. Both were formally charged Tuesday afternoon.
At one point, authorities thought these two were the suspects who may have killed LeBeau. Later on, they determined Rice and Scholten were not in the house at the time of the shootings. However, both men face charges for what police call their "involvement" in the crime, because authorities believe Rice, Scholten and other suspects targeted LeBeau's house to steal something.
LeBeau's 48-year-old father was also shot. He remains in the hospital, and police said he is in stable condition. At this point, authorities believe the attempted robbery went bad and led to gunfire.
"Like any investigation, things may change. We thought we had things figured out this morning, as more information came in that changed," Clemens said.
At one point during Tuesday's search, authorities believed Scholten was at a house across from St. Mary Elementary School in Dell Rapids. Students were not allowed to leave the building.
"Because it was directly across the street from the house where the suspect was believed to be at, we moved all the students out of the north side of the school and moved them to other parts of the school," Minnehaha County Sheriff Mike Milstead said.
