Court documents reveal that two teens from Watertown traveled to Sioux Falls seeking $100,000 they believed was in the home of 20-year-old Jordan LeBeau.
The documents say that 18-year-old Brian David Anderson and 17-year-old Trevor Kruthoff broke through a window at LeBeau’s home on North Alaska Avenue on Monday. Jordan LeBeau's father, 48-year-old Jason LeBeau, says that he saw two males beating his son. Jason ended up punching both of the men in the face at least one time.
The affidavit says that it was then when Anderson told Kruthoff to shoot Jason.
Court papers say after Jason was shot, Jordan got up and ran towards Kruthoff. It is believed that is when Jordan was shot. Both Kruthoff and Anderson fled the residence through the same window they entered in.
Kruthoff and Anderson returned to Watertown and went to the hospital.
According to the court documents, both Kruthoff and Anderson were interviewed by Watertown Police. Kruthoff’s mother, who was in the interview room, asked, "Did you shoot him?" Kruthoff responded "Yes, I shot him."
Two others, who are from Dell Rapids, are facing less serious charges in connection with the shooting. Kevin James Rice and Douglas Peter Scholten, both 20, were arrested Tuesday in Dell Rapids.
