CHADRON -- A 21-year-old Chadron man arrested Friday in South Dakota faces charges of first-degree murder and use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony in connection with an overnight shooting, Police Chief Rick Hickstein said.

Authorities on Pine Ridge located Sage Little Moon hours after asking the public's help in finding the person of interest in the early Friday morning homicide in Chadron.

Little Moon was apprehended by officers with the Oglala Sioux Tribe Department of Public Safety. 

Hickstein reported at about 2 a.m. that shots were fired in the 300 block of Maple Street in Chadron. Officers responded to a residence, Hickstein said, and found the victim, 72-year-old John Martinez of Chadron.
