SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Sioux Falls police say illegal drugs were involved in a weekend incident in which a man was arrested for fatally shooting his brother.
Twenty-seven-year-old Jeremy Eischens is charged with manslaughter and drug counts in the incident about 3:30 a.m. Saturday in which 24-year-old Brandon Eischens was shot twice in the upper torso and died. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had an attorney. A home telephone listing couldn’t be found.
Police say Brandon Eischens went to his brother’s apartment to give him vehicle keys so his brother could make a drug run to Denver. Details of how the shooting happened weren’t immediately released, but Police Lt. Mike Colwill said it involved “reckless use” of a gun.
Authorities say they found drugs and $29,000 in cash in the apartment.
