By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 03/21/2013 07:04 AM

     RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A Rapid City police officer who shot and wounded a man who allegedly threatened officers with a butcher knife has been cleared of any wrongdoing.
     Attorney General Marty Jackley says a Division of Criminal Investigation probe concluded that Officer Jerry Moore was justified in shooting 20-year-old Elijah White Magpie on Feb. 21.
     Authorities allege that White Magpie threw a rock through a window at the city library, shattered a window in a parked van and threatened the officers.
     He has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder, aggravated assault on a police officer and intentional damage to public and private property. He could face more than 50 years in prison if convicted.
