(SD)-Shootout With Reservation Police Leaves Suspect Dead
KYLE, S.D. (AP) - The FBI is investigating a Saturday shooting on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in which one man died during an exchange of gunfire with authorities.
An FBI statement released Wednesday identified the dead man as Jeffrey Lynn Curry Jr of Allen, with an FBI spokesman saying he had no additional information other than the investigation is ongoing.
Oglala Sioux President Troy "Scott" Weston said in a separate statement Wednesday that did not include Curry's name that a man who fired multiple shots at authorities during a chase had been killed.
Tribal Police Chief Harry Martinez told the Rapid City Journal that at least 11 tribal officers were involved in the incident and have been placed on administrative leave, but the chief referred all further questions to the FBI.
