Highmore Shooting

October 29, 2007, 7:24 PM by Don Jorgensen

Highmore Shooting
A man who served as police chief in two central South Dakota towns is now at the center of a shooting investigation. 

The Division of Criminal Investigation has questioned Highmore's former chief of police, Ken Huber, about a shooting that injured his wife. The attorney general's office says Huber called 911 late Sunday night from the couple's home in Highmore but the AG's office isn't releasing any other details at this point.
Huber is not in custody at this time. 

Pam Huber is in a Sioux Falls hospital tonight and is listed in critical condition. She's Highmore's city finance officer and also runs a small embroidery business in town. 

KELOLAND News spoke with Highmore mayor Vikki Day by phone this afternoon, she says a crisis intervention team was brought in this afternoon to help people deal with their emotions because in a town like Highmore of 850 people everyone knows everyone. 

"The people who respond to the crisis in the home and the ambulance crew, they are school teachers and local people and that's one reason for having a crisis management team," said Day.

There was a vigil and prayer service in the Highmore Auditorium at 7:30 for Pam Huber. 

There was also be an emergency city meeting, so the council can decide how to keep the town running without their finance officer. 

As for Ken Huber. He had worked as Highmore's Police Chief for nearly ten years.

This summer he took a leave of absence to go work in Miller to help that police department out. But in August, the Highmore City Council asked Huber to make a decision of where he wanted to work, Highmore or Miller. He chose Miller. 

But city officials told KELOLAND News Huber only worked there for a few months before resigning in October.
