RAPID CITY, SD -
Rapid City Police Chief Steven Allender says the suspect involved in a fatal officer shooting has died.
Wednesday afternoon, South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley confirmed that 22-year-old Daniel John Tiger of Rapid City died at Rapid City Regional Hospital.
Officer James McCandless, 28, died in the shooting that involved two other officers who had stopped a group of four people. Allender says at some point while the officers were in contact with the group, Tiger pulled out a concealed pistol and fired several rounds. At least one officer fired back. When it was all over, all three officers had been shot along with Tiger.
Officer Tim Doyle, 39, had surgery after being shot in the face and is now in stable condition. The other officer, 27-year-old Nick Armstrong, also had surgery Tuesday night. He is still in critical condition.
