Sioux Falls Police say Friday's double homicide was drug related.

Right now Public Information Officer Sam Clemens says three people are wanted in connection with the deadly shooting. They are Manuel Jesus Frias, Maria Shantell LeClaire and Crystal Habben who is being sought for misprison of a felony.

"Things obviously could change depending on information that comes in. Once we start talking to people and hopefully when we talk to both Maria and Crystal we will get a better picture of this as well. Everything points to a 'drug rip' that just went bad."

Clemens is asking the public for help in the investigation.

"Some people just have little bits of information. Some people may have more details. All these details from various sources, it doesn't matter if it's extensive or just little pieces. If anyone has known these three or have had contact with them in the last four or five days we want them to call police."

Clemens identified the two men that were killed. They are 28-yar-old Samuel Crockett and 30-year-old Corey Zephier.
