Woodbury County Sheriff Chad Sheehan says first responders were dispatched to the scene at about 1:30 p.m.
A wounded female was taken to a hospital and a man at the scene was dead. Sheehan says authorities got a description of a suspect and a vehicle.
“A vehicle matching the description was stopped down in Sloan,” the sheriff says, “and we believe that we have a suspect in custody, but this is very preliminary in the investigation.”
The names of the victims have not been released.
