RAPID CITY, S.D. – Rapid City police say a man wanted in connection with a shooting death on the Pine Ridge Reservation is in custody.

Police surrounded a home in the 300 block of Curtis Street in north Rapid City Friday evening.

Bagola was wanted in connection to a Pine Ridge homicide Tuesday. Oglala Sioux Tribe Police Chief Robert Ecoffey identified the victim as Sloane Bull Bear.

After a short standoff, Bagola was taken into custody after surrendering to police.

The F.B.I. and Oglala Sioux Tribe Department of Public Safety are investigating the case.
