Custer County deputy shoots, wounds man who pointed gun
CUSTER, S.D. - Authorities say a deputy shot and wounded a man in Custer who refused to drop a gun and pointed it at the officer.
Custer County Sheriff Marty Mechaley said in a release that the shooting happened after a woman called 911 Sunday evening and requested help at her home. The release said the call was disconnected before she could give further explanation.
The Rapid City Journal reports that a man inside the house was holding a firearm and refused to drop it after the deputy and woman told him to do so.
Authorities say the man’s injuries appear to be non-life threatening.
