Minnehaha County Sheriff Mike Milstead gives a riveting behind the scenes account of the Lake County manhunt this week for the guy who had shot and wounded a deputy.
Milstead tells KELO Radio’s Greg Belfrage Show that he was in bed when he got the first call of what was breaking very early Wednesday morning.
Milstead posted some of his deputies at rural checkpoints to help Lake County authorities, searching for the gunman still on the loose. It was a very tense time.
The suspect was eventually located, holed up in a ditch, and after a long standoff, surrendered. Milstead was in the command center when the word came through.
McCook County Sheriff’s Deputy Dylan Hillestad was shot in the arm. He’s going to be just fine.
The suspected gunman, 37-year-old Matthew James Rumbolz of Montrose, is now behind bars.
