SALEM, S.D. (AP) - Attorney General Marty Jackley says his office is investigating the shooting of a man in Salem by a McCook County sheriff’s deputy.

Jackley says the shooting happened about 10:30 p.m. Sunday, when law officers responded to a call from the Brewery Bar and “the incident escalated.”

Bar owner Sheri Greenlee tells KSFY-TV that a man had been acting unruly in the bar, and that he got into a car and ran into another building.

Jackley says Deputy Randy Schwader shot 38-year-old Cornelius Milk, of Salem. Milk was taken to a local hospital with unknown injuries.

This story has been corrected to show that the deputy’s last name is Schwader, not Schafer or Schwaber.
