Deputy shoots man with knife right outside county jail

A man charged at a Minnehaha County sheriff's deputy with a knife and officers shot him outside of the Minnehaha County Jail on Tuesday afternoon.

Authorities say a disorderly subject went into the lobby of the jail around 3 p.m. with some sort of bottle and was asked to leave. The 44-year-old man began hitting the glass front door of the lobby with an object.

The man then threw what was believed to be a liquor bottle at a correctional officer.

Authorities then say the man charged at law enforcement with a knife.

Officers fired two shots. He was hit at least one time. The man was treated for injuries on the scene and taken to an area hospital.
