UPDATE, 10:40 a.m.

Police say they are looking for three people following a shooting at a Western Sioux Falls home that left one person hurt.

However, many details about Thursday morning's shooting are still unclear.

Police spokesperson Sam Clemens said two men and one woman entered a mobile home on the 700 block of Regal Place around 6:15 a.m. At some point, one of the three people who had entered the home shot the victim with a rifle. The three people then left in a light-colored pickup.

The 27-year-old victim and a friend drove to a hospital, where the victim immediately was taken to surgery. Clemens said the victim's injuries were not life-threatening.

Clemens said the victim and the three people entered the home knew each other, and that this was not a "random act." However, investigators have not yet determined a motive, and are still seeking witnesses to help clear up some of the other details.

Anyone with information is asked to call Sioux Empire CrimeStoppers at (877) 367-7007.
