DANTE, S.D. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a suspect in an incident in Charles Mix County that involved shots fired by a sheriff’s deputy.

Attorney General Marty Jackley says 40-year-old Russell Turner Jr. was arrested at his home in Wagner. Jackley says Turner was arrested on three outstanding warrants, with additional charges pending.

Authorities say the deputy was responding to a disturbance call near Dante early Thursday when he approached a pickup truck with two people inside. Jackley says the incident “escalated” and the deputy fired into the vehicle, which fled the scene.

The sheriff’s office says Turner resisted arrest and tried to strike the deputy with the pickup.

Authorities say a minor was a passenger in the vehicle. The person suffered undisclosed injuries that Jackley says aren’t from gunfire.

Turner wasn’t injured by gunfire.
