RAPID CITY, SD -
The South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley says the man killed by a Pennington County Deputy Wednesday night was armed.
The Sheriff's Office dispatched Deputy Ed Johnson to 6248 Blake Road for a traffic complaint just before 7:00 p.m. When he arrived, Johnson tried to contact the driver of the vehicle when he heard a gunshot come from a garage on the property. When he entered, he found a 43-year-old man carrying a scoped rifle and handgun.
The attorney general says the incident ended with Johnson firing his duty weapon, killing the suspect. His name has not been released.
The Division of Criminal Investigation is investigating.
