SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - Sioux Falls police have custody of the fourth person that fled the officer-involved shooting on Tuesday. Two other females now face separate charges after Wednesday night’s events.

Police spokesman, Sam Clemens, said Sioux Falls officers gained custody of the fourth person that was in the stolen car that spurred the officer-involved shooting. The suspect, 29-year-old Tanner Turkey, drove away in the Pontiac Bonneville on Tuesday while shots were fired.

Turkey evaded police until around 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, when officers saw Turkey enter the Pontiac Bonneville in northern Sioux Falls. Officers attempted another traffic stop on the stolen Bonneville, but the suspect’s car led police on another pursuit. During the pursuit the suspect car side-swiped another car, causing minor damage before eventually coming to a stop at a dead end.

The report shows two people jumped out of the suspect car while one woman stayed in the car, attempting to drive it a short distance before jumping out to run on foot as well. Officers now have custody of all three suspects and found a small amount of marijuana, meth, and a syringe in the car.

Turkey was noted as a parole absconder and had a previous charge for Aggravated Assault when he threatened someone with a gun in a domestic case. Turkey now faces additional charges of Possession of a Stolen Vehicle and Possession of Controlled Substances and Paraphernalia. The DCI is still investigating Turkey’s role in the incident that led to the officer-involved shooting, so he may have more charges pending.

The driver of the stolen vehicle, 22-year-old Rhianna Perry from Sioux Falls, now faces charges of Controlled Substances and Paraphernalia, Possession of a Stolen Vehicle, Aggravated Eluding, Hit and Run, No Drivers License, and Resisting Arrest.
