July 28, 2020

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – Sioux Falls police say a fatal shooting Sunday was not a random act and that the victim and two suspects under arrest knew each other.

Police Monday identified the victim as 31-year-old Lamar Hood.

Lt. Terry Matia says Hood was shot “numerous times” and later died at a hospital.

A 24-year-old man is being held on a probable charge of second-degree murder. A 22-year-old woman is detained on a possible charge of accessory to second-degree murder.

Both are being held in the Minnehaha County Jail.

Police responded to a report of gunshots about 4:30 a.m. Sunday. Authorities say they received several calls that someone had been shot and found the injured Hood.
