Guard Dead Following Escape Attempt
SIOUX FALLS, SD - A South Dakota correctional officer is dead following an escape attempt by two inmates at the state Penitentiary in Sioux Falls Tuesday morning.

The two inmates, Rodney Berget and Eric Robert, didn't get far. They were caught on the prison grounds just before 11 a.m.

The guard was taken to a Sioux Falls hospital following the attack and was pronounced dead at 11:50 a.m. His wife has been notified, but his identity is being withheld until all of his family has been contacted.

Another officer was also hurt. He was taken to a hospital with minor injuries and is being evaluated.

The Penitentiary is on lockdown while authorities conduct an investigation. All staff members and inmates are accounted for.

KELOLAND News has a crew on the scene and will have more on the situation throughout the day.
