Standoff in Pierre, may be related to Ft. Thompson shooting
UPDATE: As of 11:30 Thursday night, Pierre Police and other law enforcement agencies remain at the site of a reported standoff in the area of North Highland Avenue. Officials have been at the scene since mid-afternoon today.
Wednesday, law enforcers were involved in a vehicle chase that ended with a man being shot in a rural area near Fort Thompson. Thursday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation issued a statement asking for the public's assistance in finding a man wanted for questioning in Wednesday's incident; 27-year-old Jason Garreau.
UPDATE 10:45 PM: KSFY news reporter Courtney Collen reports that an armed stand-off continues in Pierre at a mobile home court commonly called the Pierre Trailer Park near Euclid and 6th Street. A dozen officers are on the scene, including members of the Pierre SWAT team and the FBI. Police on the scene tell KSFY that they believe an armed man is inside a mobile home and is believed to be armed with a high power rifle. Courtney Collen says several loud "bangs" have been heard at the scene but she is unable to determine if they are gunshots or perhaps tear gas being fired in the area. We know that an ambulance arrived at the scene with lights and sirens going and that a Pierre police officer climbed into that ambulance before it left the scene. We still do not know the status of the man believed to be holed up inside the mobile home. This is an update to a breaking news story.
