SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Authorities say a man was shot outside of a South Dakota jail after he charged at an officer with a knife.
Minnehaha County Sheriff Mike Milstead says authorities responded to gunshots just after 3 p.m. Tuesday.
Milstead says two shots were fired, and at least one hit the suspect.
Jail Warden Jeff Gromer says a man holding a glass bottle approached the jail lobby and was hitting the bottle against the lobby window when security asked for police help.
Gromer says the men threw either a rock or the bottle through the jail door, injuring one officer with broken glass. Gromer says the man charged officers with a knife and was shot.
