Police Name Man Killed In Shooting

Police Name Man Killed In Shooting
SIOUX FALLS, SD - The South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation is looking into what happened before an officer-involved shooting that left a Sioux Falls man dead.

Sioux Falls police responded to a call about a man carrying a gun around 11:15 p.m. Wednesday. When they arrived at the 3100 block of East 19th Street, they found 30-year-old Aaron S. Thompson with a gun on a sidewalk.

Police Chief Doug Barthel says officers tried for 15 to 20 minutes to get Thompson to put the weapon down. Instead, officers say he started firing at them. Police returned fire and Thompson was hit. Barthel says Thompson was shot several times and died at the hospital.

At this point, authorities are still investigating exactly how many shots were fired by Thompson and the eight officers who were on the scene. Barthel says at least five of the eight will probably have some time off as an internal investigation is done.
