Rapid City police officers and Pennington County sheriff deputies were sent to the South Dakota Rose Inn motel on East Boulevard at 7:10 p.m. Monday for a shooting.
Police captain Doug Thrash has confirmed the death of a man in the motel’s parking lot. The victim died at the scene from gunshot wounds.
Thrash says patrol officers are searching the area for possible clues. The police captain says the victim’s age, ethnicity, and identity are unknown at this time.
“We don’t know who it is,” said Captain Thrash. “We haven’t checked him for I.D. yet. We’re in the process of getting evidence out here to start working on the crime scene so we don’t mess up any evidence.”
Police officers and sheriff’s deputies don’t have any suspects at this time.
