Suspect wanted in Sioux Falls double homicide arrested in South Sioux City standoff

UPDATE:

More details about last night's arrest of a double murder suspect.

Manuel Frias appeared in Dakota County Court this morning where he was charged with both 1st and 2nd degree murder and manslaughter in connection with a shooting January 5th in Sioux Falls that killed two people.

South Sioux Police say they got a tip from US Marshals that Frias was inside a house on "B" Street in South Sioux City.

They helped Marshals set up a perimeter around that house just after 5:30 PM yesterday and began trying to contact Frias to negotiate with him.

Around 9:30 PM, Frias walked out of the house and surrendered without incident.

He is being held in the Dakota County Jail on a $1 million dollar bond. Frias is awaiting extradition back to Sioux Falls.


DEVELOPING TONIGHT:

A standoff in South Sioux City ends with Marshals arresting one of Siouxland's Most Wanted and a suspected double murderer.

The US Marshals and South Sioux City Police surrounded a home on the 1800 block of B Street in South Sioux around 5:30 this evening.

The combined SWAT Team with members from Dakota County Sheriff's Office and South Sioux City Police Department, approached the home and a 10-year-old came out of the house. South Sioux City Police Chief Ed Mahon said the boy is not a hostage, and is said to be a resident of the home.

As SWAT entered the home just after 9:30, they found Manuel Frias, who was featured on Siouxland's Most Wanted last Monday for his role in a suspected double homicide earlier this month in Sioux Falls.

Frias reportedly surrendered to the SWAT team upon entry. He was wanted for that murder, after what police say, a drug deal gone bad.

Police in Sioux Falls have arrested 7 other people in their search for Frias and a suspected female accomplice was arrested in Minnesota last week.
