Police identify 36-year-old Sioux Falls man killed in shooting as investigation continues
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - Sioux Falls Police are continuing to investigate a fatal shooting in southwest Sioux Falls and are asking for the public’s help in the investigation.
On Thursday, police initially received reports of gunshots at around 3:30 am near 57th Street and Baneberry Drive. Arriving offices found a vehicle crashed at a nearby gas station at 57th Street and Marion Avenue.
“And inside of it was a man that had been shot, more than once, we’re not sure of the exact number at this point,” said Officer Sam Clemens with the Sioux Falls Police Dept.
The victim, 36-year-old man Clay Douglas Stubbs, was taken to the hospital where he later died of his injuries.
Police say the investigation is on-going. Police are asking nearby residents in a six-block radius to check their home surveillance system and to contact them if they notice anything unusual the night of the shooting.
“We’re still doing a lot of processing. We’ve got the car to process and then you know looking for different pieces of evidence at both that 57th and Marion and 56th and Baneberry is roughly that other area that may be related to this shooting,” Officer Clemens on Thursday.
Police cars were still out as employees started the morning shift at Scooter’s Coffee.
“I was super surprised getting here and seeing that the first thing when I’m not even awake in the morning at 5:30, it’s kind of frightening a little bit,” said Scooter’s Employee, Kami Weber.
Weber still can’t believe what happened.
“That was pretty scary, it’s right by our work. So it’s something that makes us want to lock the door more often and be cautious of everything,” said Weber.
From now on, Weber’s going to be more aware of her surroundings.
“It’s a little scary. You’ve just gotta keep your eye out and be observant,” said Weber.
