The South Dakota U.S. Attorney’s Office has charged 23-year-old Dancing Bull Fischer with one count of second-degree murder for shooting and killing his uncle early Tuesday morning on the Yankton Sioux Indian Reservation.
Court documents say that Dancing Bull Fischer was drinking alcohol with 47-year-old Tony Fischer Senior and Tony’s son, Dominic Fischer, just before 1 a.m. Tuesday at a mobile home just a few miles north of Marty, South Dakota.
Court documents say that two other people who were trying to sleep in the home at the time could hear Dancing Bull Fischer yelling in the living room and then heard four to five gunshots. When they walked out into the living room, they saw Dancing Bull Fischer holding an assault rifle and Tony Fischer Sr. and Dominic Fischer on the floor.
Witnesses observed that Tony Fischer Sr. had a gunshot wound to the head. Tony Fischer Junior tells KELOLAND News that Dancing Bull Fischer is the nephew of Tony Fischer Sr.
Dominic Fischer is currently at Avera McKennan hospital in Sioux Falls with critical injuries.
Dancing Bull Fischer is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday.
