RCPD offering $5,000 reward toward apprehension of murder suspect
RAPID CITY, S.D. — The Rapid City Police Department has secured approval from the Community Reward Fund to offer a $5,000 reward for information that leads to the apprehension of 22-year-old Jamys Flying Horse.
Flying Horse is wanted as the suspect responsible for a shooting incident in September in the 3400 block of Hemlock Street that took the life of one man and injured another.
A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Flying Horse for first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, and commission of a felony with a firearm.
The investigation into the fatal shooting is being conducted jointly between the RCPD and the Pennington County Sheriff’s Office, and it remains open.

“We are calling on the community to help us safely locate this dangerous individual,” says Captain John Olson, commander of the RCPD’s Criminal Investigations Division. “Someone out there knows where he is, and we’re hoping this reward will help them come forward and assist us in this investigation. To Mr. Flying Horse, we’re asking for your peaceful surrender. To those harboring Mr. Flying Horse, know that you can be held criminally accountable as an accessory to a felony.”
