On September 1, 2017, the Sioux Falls Police Department responded to an apartment complex near West 43rd Street and South Westport Avenue. Multiple residents had called 911 to report hearing people fighting and what they believed to be gunshots.

Once officers arrived on scene, they located evidence that the structure had been hit with a gunshot. Officers were able to contact victims and witnesses and the investigation continues. The initial investigation shows that a dispute over narcotics may have led to a physical altercation and the gunfire. As a result of the gunshots, no residents were injured and further information will be available at the Tuesday morning press briefing.
