Shooting incident near Wounded Knee

Police capture 4 suspects after shooting near Wounded Knee


The Associated Press - August 13, 2019

WOUNDED KNEE, S.D. — Police from the Oglala Sioux Tribe have captured four suspects following a shooting near Wounded Knee.

KOTA-TV reports the teens were captured after citizens helped police find them at a home in the Wounded Knee housing area.

Tribal police chief Robert Ecoffey says an officer responded to a call of shots fired on Tuesday morning. When the officer tried to stop the suspects, they took off in a stolen car.

Ecoffey says the officer came across the car in a ravine, and when he got out of his patrol car and approached the suspects, a gun was fired at him but the officer was not hit.

No one was hurt in the earlier shooting.
