SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - One man has been arrested and police are searching for a second suspect in a fatal shooting in Sioux Falls.

A 39-year-old local man has been arrested in the death of 36-year-old Clay Stubbs. He was found dead near a vehicle that had crashed Oct. 8. Police say Stubbs was shot to death shortly before the crash, the Argus Leader reported.

Authorities are also looking for a 34-year-old Sioux Falls man in connection with Stubbs’ death.

According to court documents, Stubbs was planning to sell a pound of marijuana to the man in custody. Police say the two men were planning to jump Stubbs during the drug deal because he owed one of the men some money.

The man in custody told investigators the second suspect approached Stubbs’ vehicle and shot him two times.

Officers say they found shell casings, two live 9mm rounds, a spent round and a bullet hole in a Grand Jeep Cherokee in the apartment parking lot. Lt. Terrance Matia says police have not recovered a gun.

Court documents say authorities found a half-pound of marijuana, 28 grams of meth, 27 pills and a baggie of methamphetamine in the SUV.

Stubbs was found lying on the ground in front of the crashed vehicle with a gunshot wound to his torso.
