SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — A Sioux Falls man has been arrested for aggravated assault after a shooting near downtown Sunday.

At police briefing on Monday, Officer Sam Clemens said a woman, her 6-year-old daughter and a man were walking near North Spring Avenue and 7th Street around 7:30 p.m. The man picked up a toy laying in the boulevard when a man began yelling at him, accusing him of stealing the toy. Police say several people came out of the home and began to yell at and approach the victims.
