Update: Police Shoot Man In Western SD



Bookmark and Share

A suspected drunken driver was shot multiple times after allegedly brandishing a rifle following a half-hour police chase in southwestern South Dakota.
   
Attorney General Marty Jackley says two Pennington County deputies and a Highway Patrol officer chased 43-year-old Travis Ross on Interstate 90 Monday afternoon. The officers used spike strips to disable the suspect's vehicle when Ross left the interstate in the New Underwood area. They shot him when he allegedly got out of the vehicle with the weapon.
   
Ross was taken to a Rapid City hospital with undisclosed injuries. No officers were hurt.
   
Jackley says Ross has an active warrant for violating parole on a felony drunken driving conviction.
   
Jackley will determine if Deputies Robert Schoeberl and Jamin Hartland and Trooper Clayton Heinrich were justified in shooting Ross.
