BOX ELDER, S.D. — The state has taken over the investigation of a deputy-involved shooting in Pennington County.
Sheriff’s officials asked the Division of Criminal Investigation to review the shooting by a deputy at a residence in Box Elder. A 21-year-old Rapid City man was shot and wounded Monday afternoon during a warrant check.
Attorney General Marty Jackley says state investigators are expected to forward their review of the shooting to him within 30 days. The man who was shot, 21-year-old Cruz Deleon, and 30-year-old Cassandra Quiver were arrested on outstanding warrants. Authorities allege Deleon pointed a handgun at the deputy before being shot. He suffered an injury that isn’t life-threatening.
