(SD)-Names Released In Box Elder Police Shooting
BOX ELDER, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley has released the identities of the Box Elder man killed in an incident with police earlier this week and the officer who shot him, but most details of the incident remain sealed.
44-year-old Wayne Traversie of Box Elder died at the scene early Wednesday morning while Officer John Cargill has been placed on administrative leave, which is standard department policy. Cargill was among the officers who had responded to a call at a mobile home in Valley Village.
Jackley's office is expected to issue a report on the shooting from the Division of Criminal Investigation within 30 days.
