Court Document Outlines How Standoff Started

Father And Son Make First Court Appearance

Court documents offer a few details into how a one-day standoff near Kimball started.

Prosecutors have charged 42-year-old Donald London with attempted murder and aggravated assault of an officer. His father, 66-year-old Michael London, of Chamberlain, was charged with two counts of aiding and abetting aggravated assault.

Both men made their initial appearance Friday and are being held in the Chamberlain jail on high bond.

According to an affidavit filed with the complaint, Donald London threatened Brule County law enforcement officers.

The document says when law enforcement went to his house on Wednesday, Michael London saw the officers and told his son, who fired multiple shots, striking one of the troopers in the arm and side.

Michael London walked out of the house Wednesday. His son came out Thursday.
