Police say he also has active warrants for Attempted Murder, Commission of a Felony with a Firearm, and Possession of a Firearm with a Prior Felony Drug Conviction.

The warrants stem from the shooting last weekend, during which officers responded to the area of N. Maple Avenue and E. Knollwood Drive for reports of gunshots.

Upon arrival, officers located a male victim who had been shot, and provided immediate first aid until a medical unit transported the injured male to the hospital. His injuries are serious but not life-threatening.

Colhoff has been transported to the Pennington County Jail, and the investigation into the shooting incident is ongoing.
