YANKTON, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley has cleared a Yankton police officer who shot and wounded a suspect last month.

Stenehjem says a Division of Criminal Investigation probe concluded Officer Jason Foote was justified in shooting 19-year-old Trae Angel on Sept. 1.

Angel has since pleaded not guilty to attempted murder and other charges.

Authorities allege Angel assaulted two people and attempted to carjack a woman at gunpoint. Jackley’s report says Angel also told a dispatcher he was going to kill himself and fired a gun to prove he had one.

Angel also allegedly threatened to kill officers and pointed a gun at them several times before being shot in an alley.
