According to Dakota News Now, police were able to speak with a number of eye-witnesses that provided accurate descriptions of the two suspects and the direction they were headed after the shots were fired. The valuable information was instrumental in helping authorities locate the two suspects within minutes of the shooting taking place.
Sioux Falls police ended up apprehending 18-year-old Rahsaan Mcneil, along with a juvenile, whose identity cannot be released.
A handgun was also found at the time of the arrest.
Mcneil was taken into custody and charged with aggravated assault and discharge at an occupied structure.
A police investigation revealed there was no connection between the two suspects and the female victim.
Due to the location of the shooting, a nearby school was forced to activate its shelter-in-place policy as a precaution until the suspects were taken into custody.
