Sioux Falls Neighborhood On Edge After Fatal Shooting

Sioux Falls Neighborhood On Edge After Fatal Shooting

A neighborhood is on edge after watching their driveways turn into a crime scene following a deadly shooting Monday afternoon in Sioux Falls.

For one family who just moved to the city, the yellow tape and police cars visible from their front window are hard to comprehend.

Sioux Falls Police and the Minnehaha County Sheriff's Department received a call shortly before 3 p.m. Monday afternoon about a shooting on the 4200 block of N. Alaska Avenue.

"They had found one person that had been shot. He was taken to the hospital. There was another person that was found that was deceased inside the house, as well," Sioux Falls Public Information Officer Sam Clemens said.

It did not take long for word to spread about what was taking place. Jamie Miller was at work when she found out.

"My friend came in, she must have an app on her phone and she said, ' Hey Jamie, is this your house?' and I was like 'Yeah' and she said ' There was a shooting on your street.' I said ' Oh my God,'" Miller said.

Miller kept her one-year-old son at day care so she could go home to see what was happening. What she saw was police tape, crime scene investigators and an entire neighborhood in shock.

"I get that it can happen anywhere, I get that it can happen in small towns and the nicest of neighborhoods, but still just kind of shock, I guess. We've only been here like two and a half months, so it's kind of a crazy 'Welcome to the Neighborhood' sort of thing," Miller said.

Her family found so much to love in this neighborhood when they first moved in, but Miller admits this shooting will leave a long-lasting scar.

"It's so busy with activity and young kids that it was attractive for us for that reason. You just never expect, you never expect that, I guess," Miller said.

Clemens added that the neighborhood is safe, but no further information is being released about the shooting at this time.
