RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A South Dakota man accused of shooting one man and injuring another has been arrested, officials with the Pennington County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday.

Jamys Flying Horse, 22, was taken into custody about around 6:30 a.m. Wednesday on charges of first degree murder, attempted first degree murder and commission of felony with a firearm. The warrant stemmed from a Sept. 6 shooting in Rapid City.

Authorities said Flying Horse and a juvenile were pulled over by a sheriff’s deputy about 2:15 a.m. when the deputy noticed the vehicle had no license plates. The two suspects fled the scene. Flying Horse was apprehended about four hour later hiding in a creek, after law enforcement used a drone to help find him.

No other details have been released. It wasn’t immediately clear if Flying Horse had a lawyer.
