PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A grand jury has indicted a father and son on charges stemming from a standoff near Kimball in which a South Dakota Highway Patrol trooper suffered gunshot wounds and another was fired upon.

South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley says 42-year-old Donald London was indicted on two counts of attempted first-degree murder and three counts of aggravated assault on law enforcement officer. He faces up to 50 years in prison if convicted.

Meanwhile, 66-year-old Michael London, of Chamberlain, was indicted on two counts of aiding and abetting aggravated assault on law enforcement officer.

Authorities say the standoff began when the men threatened officers. An investigation found that over 100 rounds were fired from within the home that was the scene of the Jan. 7 incident.

It’s unclear whether the men have attorneys.
