PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota investigators have determined that a sheriff’s deputy was justified in shooting a Minnesota man following an escalation from a short vehicle pursuit in rural Moody County.

Attorney General Marty Jackley and the Division of Criminal Investigation say that after 59-year-old Robert Nosbusch failed to follow repeated commands on Feb. 16, he began walking towards officers and another Pipestone, Minn., man wielding a 45 caliber pistol.

The investigation found that Moody County Sheriff’s Deputy Nathan Bowden had little choice but to fire his weapon in defense of himself and the third party.

Nosbusch was taken by ambulance to a hospital and treated for wounds.
