SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — Police say they found one of three suspects involved in a stolen car and rollover crash early Thursday morning.

Sioux Falls police say it started just before midnight when a man noticed two men and a woman near his car in a hotel parking lot. As he was walking up, one guy punched him, then pulled out a handgun and demanded the keys to the car. The victim initially said he didn’t have the keys. A relative of the victim walked up and the suspect pointed the gun at the relative.

The first victim gave up the keys and all three suspects took off in the car. A short time later, police found the car crash near Madison Street and Elmwood Avenue.

All three suspects took off running, but police later found one of the suspects who was taken to hospital for injuries. Police are still looking for the other two people involved.
