RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A man shot by a Rapid City police officer who responded to a shooting near a homeless shelter is dead.

The state attorney general’s office says 44-year old Earl Hicks, of Rapid City, was pronounced dead at a hospital shortly after the incident Sunday afternoon outside the Cornerstone Rescue Mission.

Police say the unnamed officer shot Hicks after Hicks threatened the officer with a handgun. The state Division of Criminal Investigation is looking into the matter, which is normal procedure.

Police say the person whom Hicks allegedly shot is expected to survive.
