Sioux Falls Man Shot By Police

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Police say a 22-year-old man has been shot and killed after pointing a rifle at officers outside a Sioux Falls home.

Sioux Falls Police Chief Doug Barthel says officers were called to the home after a man there reportedly threatened to kill himself with a gun.

Barthel says at least one gunshot had been fired from the home before officers arrived and another shot was heard once they got to the scene. He says officers tried to negotiate with the man, who eventually came outside and pointed a rifle at officers.

Barthel says a SWAT officer shot the man at least twice, fatally wounding him. Police haven’t released the man’s name.

The officer is on paid leave pending an investigation.
