RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — Rapid City police are looking for two additional suspects in connection with a fatal motel shooting.

Authorities believe five people were involved in the death of 20-year-old Jesus Vance at the South Dakota Rose Inn last Friday. Three are in custody, including a 37-year-old man who was wounded at the motel.

Investigators say surveillance footage showed two vehicles leaving the area shortly after the shooting took place. One was located in the area where occupants on the vehicle were seen entering a nearby residence. They were detained and interviewed by police about their potential involvement in the shooting.


The second vehicle was also located and its occupants were detained.

Two of three in custody are being held on second-degree kidnapping and aggravated assault charges. Warrants have been issued for a 32-year-old woman and a 35-year-old man wanted for aiding and abetting.
