RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — The attorney representing a man accused of threatening Rapid City police officers with a butcher knife says his client is competent to stand trial.

Twenty-one-year-old Elijah White Magpie was shot and wounded by police in February after he allegedly threatened officers who responded to a disturbance at the public library.

White Magpie is charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault on a police officer and intentional damage to public property.

Defense attorney Daniel Leon told Judge Janine Kern on Monday that he has reviewed the results of mental health evaluations done on White Magpie and has no concerns with his client’s ability to assist in his own defense.

Judge Janine Kern will review the results before White Magpie’s next hearing on Nov. 12.
