YANKTON, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota Attorney General’s office says a 19-year-old man shot by a police officer in Yankton has been charged with attempted murder.

Trae Angel, of Yankton, faces other charges including aggravated assault against a law enforcement officer.

Yankton police responded to a 911 domestic disturbance call involving a gun at a Yankton residence Tuesday evening but did not find the suspect at the residence. Officers from several agencies began an hour-long search before finding the man in a downtown alley about 10 p.m.

The Attorney General’s office says Yankton Police Sgt. Jason Foote shot Angel, who was armed. The man was taken to a hospital.

Authorities will release more details in the case in a report to be issued in a month.

It’s unclear whether Angel has legal representation.
