Police continue to investigate shooting incident in North Rapid City

  • Updated
Active investigation

Police cars line the driveway of the Knollwood Townhomes on the 1700 block of North Maple Street on Thursday.

Arrests have yet to be made following a Thursday morning shooting at Knollwood Townhouses in North Rapid City.

Police said Thursday they detained juveniles as young as 12 years old after a number of shots were fired early Thursday morning, but according to police spokesperson Brendyn Medina on Friday, the department is still working to determine those involved. All arrests made were unrelated to the shooting, he said.

No additional details were available Friday morning, and Medina said police are "keeping all possibilities open."

Captain James Johns of the Criminal Investigation Division said Thursday that nine to 10 rounds were fired around 5 a.m. into cars and Apartment Building C on the 1700 block of North Maple Avenue. No injuries have been reported, according to Johns, and a number of people fled the scene on foot.

Officers heard gunshots while responding to a call of "shots fired" around 5 a.m., Medina said on Thursday. He said every available officer responded as well as members of the Pennington County Sheriff's Office.

Medina also said Thursday the Department does not know the number of shooters and guns that were used, along with the types of guns and where they came from. He said it's also unknown how many people were involved in the shooting and how many juveniles are suspects.

Johns asked anyone who has information to call the criminal investigations division at 394-4134.
