WARD, S.D. (AP) — The South Dakota attorney general’s office says an altercation between two Minnesota men led to a short vehicle pursuit that escalated into a Moody County sheriff’s deputy shooting one of the men.

Attorney General Marty Jackley says Deputy Nathan Bowden fired his duty weapon and struck 59-year-old Robert Alan Nosbusch, who was armed with a 45 caliber pistol.

Jackley says the incident began around noon Thursday in rural Moody County with an altercation between Nosbusch and 51-year-old Ricky Jay Christian, both from Pipestone, Minn.

Moody County state’s attorney Bill Ellingson says Nosbusch was taken by ambulance to a hospital and treated for wounds.

Jackley says the request for investigation came from the Moody County sheriff’s office, and a summary report by state investigators is expected within 30 days.
