SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - Authorities say a barricaded suicidal subject in a vehicle caused a convenience store in Madison to evacuate and prompted a large law enforcement presence on Wednesday.

At around 11:30 am, Madison Police, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office, and the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation responded to the 500 block of SE 10th Street.

All customers and staff were able to safely make it out of a Madison convenience store where the large law enforcement presence was gathered.

The Classic Corner posted on its Facebook page, “Everyone at the store has been evacuated and the entire team along w/ several customers are off the property and ALL are safe.”

Authorities say the scene is safe and that the DCI will be conducting a follow-up investigation.
