Attorney General Says Officers Justified In Shooting Suspect

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — Attorney General Marty Jackley says three law enforcement officers were justified in shooting a man following a chase in southwestern South Dakota.

Jackley and the Division of Criminal Investigation were asked to look into the June 17th incident.  Jackley says the Division of Criminal Investigation determined that the two Pennington County deputies and Highway Patrol officer were justified in shooting Travis Ross. The law enforcement officers chased Ross and shot him when he brandished a rifle.

Jackley had said that Ross, who survived the shooting, had an active warrant for violating parole on a felony drunken driving conviction.
