RAPID CITY, SD -
A Wyoming man who was shot by law officers following a vehicle chase in the Rapid City area has been
charged with attempted first-degree murder and six other felonies stemming from the alleged incident.
Authorities allege that 42-year-old James Baker, of Gillette, Wyo., fled from a traffic stop early in the morning Jan. 10 and led officers on a chase before emerging from his vehicle and firing his 9 mm semiautomatic handgun at officers.
The officers returned fire and shot Baker at least twice, in the upper torso and hand.
Pennington County Deputy State's Attorney Lara Roetzel says charges were brought Thursday against Baker, formerly of Box Elder, S.D.
