Court documents show a fatal shooting Tuesday at a Pierre home happened after two boys were argued over a past paintball incident.
Dalton Williams was killed in the shooting at approximately 5:28 pm Tuesday night at 400 North Buchanan in Pierre. Williams was shot by a shotgun in the chest. He was taken to a Pierre hospital where he died from his injuries.
Another teen, Braiden McCahren is charged with Murder in the First Degree for the shooting.
According to an affidavit of probable cause for warrantless arrest, McCahren and T.Y., another boy involved in the incident, were driving around running errands and picked up a .22 caliber rifle from Teton River Traders. T.Y. told investigators they had gone back to the home and unloaded some items from the vehicle. T.Y. said McCahren had taken the .22 rifle into the house where he cleaned the gun.
T.Y. said they then left the residence, went driving around. They went to pick up Williams and returned to the home at 400 N. Buchanan where they were going to get something to eat.
T.Y. said he and McCahren started arguing about a paintball incident that occurred in the past, and then they began to wrestle around jokingly. Then, McCahren went to the front door of the house close to the kitchen where they were standing and got out a shot gun.
According to the affidavit, McCahren walked into the kitchen area and pointed the shotgun at T.Y., who heard the gun click. McCahren then walked over to some drawers where he pulled out a shotgun shell, and then McCahren loaded the shotgun with that shell.
McCahren again pointed the shotgun at T.Y., and T.Y. said he heard the gun click. T.Y. said he moved towards McCahren and McCahren moved towards the front door of the house. Then T.Y. moved towards a sliding door in an attempt to leave, but he was unable to leave through the door.
T.Y. said while he was trying to leave through the sliding glass door Dalton Williams was standing between T.Y. and McCaharen. T.Y. said McCahren was facing him and Williams and the gun fired. T.Y. said he observed a splatter, left the home through the front door and called 911.
While T.Y. was on the phone McCahren left the house and entered the white excursion and appeared to be getting something from the vehicle. McCahren then went back into the house.
Braiden McCahren, also 16, was taken into custody and has been charged with Murder in the First Degree. He is currently being held in the Hughes County Shelter Facility.
The investigation is continuing and is being conducted by the Pierre Police Department and the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation.
Authorities have determined this is an isolated incident and there is no further threat to the public. Law Enforcement authorities, Pierre School District personnel, and representatives from the mental health community are conducting a coordinated effort to provide support to the schools and community.
