RCPD evacuates Star Village residents in search of a warrant subject

By  | 

Friday night Rapid City police evacuated residents from Star Village in search of what they are calling a dangerous warrant subject.

Police are looking for 23-year-old Saul Crowe, also known as Saul McCloskey.

Crowe is wanted for questioning for his potential involvement in a shooting that took place Wednesday night at a home on 7th Street.

The Pennington County Sheriff's Office says after offering a $2,000 reward for information leading to Crowe's arrest yesterday, they started receiving a number of tips on his potential whereabouts.

Pennington County Sheriff's Office Captain Tony Harrison says, "This is what we call a barricade subject and so the person inside the home who's barricaded is holding the cards to end it any time they want. As soon as he comes out and successfully gives up, we're going to all go home and let all the residents back in so we don't want this to go any longer than it has to, but we do want to keep all the residents safe. We want to keep all the law enforcement officers safe and our special response team members safe as well."

As of right now police are still searching Star Village for Crowe.

Wednesday night police responded to the shooting on 7th street but found no victim.

A short time later police were called to Stumer Road where they found a man with a gunshot wound.

He was taken to the hospital.

Police also say they believe that Crowe was involved in a burglary on September 6th.
