Man Killed By SD Highway Patrol Officer ID'd
CUSTER, SD - Authorities have identified the man shot and killed in the western South Dakota tourist town of Custer by a Highway Patrol officer.

Attorney General Marty Jackley on Wednesday said 22-year-old Cody Engen of Custer was the man killed by Officer Todd Albertson. Custer County Sheriff Rick Wheeler says Engen was a former Marine.

Authorities say Engen went on a rampage early Tuesday that included ramming his pickup truck into the sheriff's office, ransacking the building and firing numerous shots from a handgun. Wheeler says attempts to get Engen to put down his gun and surrender were unsuccessful.

The state Department of Criminal Investigation is handling the case. Jackley says he expects to have a report within 30 days. Albertson is on administrative leave, which is standard procedure.
