Police Investigating Shootings In Central Sioux Falls


Two shootings in a matter of hours have neighbors in central Sioux Falls on edge.   

Sunday night, police were called to 11th and Summit — on the western edge of downtown.

At 10:15 p.m. on Sunday, neighbors heard several gunshots.

12 hours later, a second investigation got underway when shots rang out near 14th St and Dakota Ave.  

Someone shot a parked car several times and took off.  Police say no one was inside the car at the time, and they don’t believe anyone was hurt. 

They closed down the street for more than two hours and brought in the crime lab to investigate.  They found the car’s owner at a nearby home.

More than an hour after someone in this central Sioux Falls neighborhood reported gunshots, it was still an active crime scene. Crews took pictures around this vehicle and talked with people who lived nearby. 

According to Sioux Falls Police, officers found a number of shell casings near this intersection. Further investigation found that bullets hit at least two parked cars and one structure. 

Police blocked off the street for hours, as they tried to figured out exactly what happened. 

Hours later, there are still a lot of questions.

We came back to the neighborhood after the sun came up, but we couldn’t find anymore extensive damage in the area. We tried talking with some neighbors. Nobody wanted to talk on camera. Off-camera I did talk with one family who has lived in the area for 7 years. They said they heard the shots, and sometimes this is a scary place to live. 

Another neighbor says violence is something that happens in this area, and it’s something you have to get used to. 

With this latest incident, everyone is thankful that no one was hurt. 

As the investigation continues, Sioux Falls Police are asking for your help to find the person who pulled the trigger. 

The investigation is on-going and police are still gathering information on a suspect. Anyone with any information on the case should call either Sioux Falls Police or crime stoppers.
