Police say the man who was fatally shot in Sioux Falls over the weekend and the man suspected of killing him knew each other and didn't get along.

During a briefing Monday, police spokesman Sam Clemens says 36-year-old Sioux Falls Max Bolden is still at large. Police identified the victim as 37-year-old Benjamin Donahue III.

The shooting happened in a downtown parking lot about 1 a.m. Saturday. Clemens says witnesses told police there were two shots to the victim's head.

Police say there was an altercation involving the men and that the public is not in danger.

Authorities are asking anyone who sees Bolden to call 911.

Police have found one vehicle that may be connected to the shooting - a gray Dodge Charger, but are still searching for a white Ford Explorer.
