Murder Charges For Two Men In Connection To SF Fatal Shooting

Murder Charges For Two Men In Connection To SF Fatal Shooting

It was a long day for law enforcement as arrests are made in connection to Monday's deadly shooting in Sioux Falls. Four men are now in custody, two of them charged with murder.

A full day of investigation started in Dell Rapids Tuesday morning in the search for two men in connection to Monday's shooting.

The first arrest was made at 8:30 a.m at an auto repair shop. That is where authorities found 20-year-old Kevin Rice. Officers later made their way to a farm east of Dell Rapids where they took 20-year-old Douglas Scholten into custody. They face charges of first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary and aggravated assault.

The two men were originally thought to be the ones suspected of killing 20-year-old Jordan LeBeau and severely injuring his father, but authorities later said they are only accused of being involved in a robbery and were not in the home at the time of the murder.

"It was a lot of tracking down people, and interviewing and little bits of information that comes from different sources.  That's really what helped paint a picture," Sioux Falls Public Information Officer Sam Clemens said.

The picture was not finished yet with the men suspected of killing LeBeau still missing.

The investigation led officers to Watertown where two more arrests were made. Police brought 18-year-old Brian David Anderson and 17-year-old Trevor James Kruthoff into custody.

Those two now face charges of first-degree murder and first-degree attempted murder.

LeBeau's father remains in the hospital Tuesday night in stable condition. Anderson and Kruthoff are in custody in Watertown and the investigation in this case is still ongoing.
