Tribe Mourns Woman, Children Dead In ND Shootings

RAPID CITY, SD -
As family members mourn the deaths of the victims in a quadruple homicide Friday in North Dakota, police aren't saying if they have more information in the case.
Family and tribal members say three of the four victims, Jolene Zephier and two of her children, Sabrina and Dylan Zephier, were members of the Yankton Sioux Tribe in southeast South Dakota. Jolene Zephier's mother, Madonna Zephier, says her daughter moved from the reservation to the North Dakota city of Minot more than a decade ago.
The fourth victim was Jolene Zephier's boyfriend, Jeremy Longie, who is not believed to be a member of the Yankton tribe.
Police have said they have questioned a "person of interest" but haven't identified the person or any suspects. They declined to comment further Sunday.
