At around 10:50 p.m. on August 17th, police were dispatched to a residence in the 200 block of E. Philadelphia Street for a report of a shooting that had just occurred.
On arrival, police located a single male subject with a gunshot wound on laying on the ground. This individual would be transported to the hospital with serious, life-threatening injuries.
During the course of the investigation, police located the juvenile male suspected to be involved in the incident. The juvenile has since been taken into custody in relation to the investigation.
Police continue to work to investigate the circumstances surrounding the shooting, but there exists no current risk to public safety. Because the suspect is a juvenile, the RCPD is limited in the amount of information that can be detailed about his involvement in the incident.
* The charges are merely accusations and the arrested individual is presumed innocent until proven guilty. Any additional details regarding this case can be obtained from the Pennington County State’s Attorney and/or court records as appropriate.
