Associated Press SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — 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. The man was taken to a hospital. The Argus Leader reports the courthouse and the jail were put on lockdown.
