RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — Authorities say a Rapid City man who died in a shootout with police last week was positive for COVID-19. South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg said Monday that the Division of Criminal Investigation and the Rapid City Police Department confirmed that 30-year-old Anthony Angel was positive for the disease caused by the coronavirus.
Ravnsborg says all police officers and DCI agents who were potentially exposed came back negative. A Rapid City police officer shot Angel on Wednesday night after a routine traffic stop escalated into a shootout. Angel died the next day. The officer who fired has not been identified and was placed on administrative leave. No officers were hurt.
