Sioux Falls Man Opens Door to a Stranger and a Barrel of a Gun
A Sioux Falls man heard a knock on the door and when he answered it, he was met with a barrel of a gun, being pointed to him by a complete stranger.
The aggravated assault was answered by Sioux Falls police at 1:45 AM on Wednesday (May 2) in the 4400 Block of Valhalla, near the intersection of Valhalla and Technology.
