Huante made his first appearance in Pennington County court on Friday. The judge set his bond at $1 million, cash only.

He initially told detectives that he was not involved with the shooting, but was captured on surveillance video hiding the firearm.

The probable cause affidavit says Huante admitted to approaching Quick Bear while he sat at a high-top table, shaking his hand, and then removing the firearm from his waistband and shooting Quick Bear in the head. Huante then fled the scene on foot.

He’s scheduled to make his next appearance in court on March 11.
