It’s a busy day in the newsroom as our reporters work on several stories that are already developing today.
Overnight in Sioux Falls, a call for a suicidal person led to a shooting in an east side neighborhood. The man was walking around with a gun and police say he pointed it at them and fired it.

We’ll stream that live on KELOLAND.com and Shawn Neistetad will bring you the details throughout the day on KELOLAND News. And Kelly Bartnick was out in the neighborhood this morning and talked to some people who heard the shots and say they sounded like fireworks.
