South Dakota state investigators reviewing deputy-involved shooting

SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota (AP) – South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg says the state Division of Criminal Investigation will review an officer-involved shooting outside the Minnehaha County Jail.

The review comes at the request of the Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities say a 44-year-old man was shot and wounded Tuesday afternoon after he charged at officers with a knife.

Jail Warden Jeff Gromer says the man broke a window in the door of the jail, injuring an officer with broken glass.

Gromer says the man then charged at deputies and was shot.

He was taken to the hospital for treatment of his injuries.

Ransborg will review the DCI’s findings and make a determination on the officer’s use of force.

That’s expected in 30 days.
