Standoff in Pierre, may be related to Ft. Thompson shooting

Posted: Updated:

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.

UPDATE: KSFY news reporter Courtney Collen, who is on the scene of the armed stand-off in Pierre, now reports hearing two loud bangs in the area. She also says am ambulance has now arrived at the scene with lights and sirens going.

KSFY News has learned that police have blocked off roads going into a mobile home park near the intersection north of Euclid and 4th street in Pierre.  

Tony Mangan of KCCR Radio tells us police believe 27-year-old Jason Todd Garreau, a man wanted for questioning in the Ft Thompson incident may be there and may be armed with a high powered rifle.

Right now, people living in the mobile home park and adjacent apartment building are being evacuated to a nearby church.

Earlier today, the FBI confirmed one man was dead after a shooting yesterday in Buffalo County.

According to agent Kyle Loven, the man who died near Fort Thompson, "actively engaged law enforcement."

Loven's releasing few details, but we do know that no officers were hurt.

The Crow Creek Sioux Tribal Chairman tells us this investigation has been very disruptive for the community.

He's canceled a Halloween party at the Lode Star Casino, and doesn't anticipate many parents will allow their kids to trick or treat tonight.
