26-year-old Daniel Retana of Sioux Falls is facing criminal charges for shooting a 30-year-old victim during an alcohol-influenced altercation on the city’s north side.
The incident occurred around 12:30 a.m. on Friday morning near the intersection of 60th Street North and Cliff Avenue.
Retana, engaged in an argument with the victim, produced a firearm from a vehicle and fired, striking the victim in the shoulder.
Though non-life threatening, the victim was hospitalized.
Both parties were uncooperative with the police, but surveillance footage from a nearby gas station aided investigators.
Retana, who had been drinking before the incident, was charged with aggravated domestic assault, possession of a loaded firearm while intoxicated, and reckless discharge of a firearm.
If convicted, he could face up to 32 years in prison and fines totaling $64,000.
