$5,000 reward claimed in arrest of Rapid City murder suspect

RAPID CITY, S.D. — The $5,000 reward for information leading to the apprehension of a murder suspect, 22-year-old Jamys Flying Horse, is being issued evenly among two citizens who helped law enforcement converge in on his location.

$2,500 will be issued to each of the two recipients whose identities are being purposefully withheld in order to protect them as witnesses.

Flying Horse was wanted as the suspect responsible for a shooting incident that occurred on September 6. The incident took the life of one man and injured another at a residence in the 3400 block of Hemlock Street.

A warrant had been issued for Flying Horse’s arrest for first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, and commission of a felony with a firearm.

The Rapid City Police Department secured approval from the Community Reward Fund on September 15 to offer a $5,000 reward for information that led to Flying Horse’s apprehension.

Flying Horse was taken into custody on September 16 after fleeing the scene of a traffic stop. He had attempted to gain entry into several nearby residences before trying to conceal himself in a creek, and he was ultimately taken into custody after community members reported his location, along with assistance from the RCPD/Pennington County Sheriff’s Office Drone Team.
