RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) – Authorities say a man shot by law officers following a chase in southwestern South Dakota is expected to recover.

Attorney General Marty Jackley says two Pennington County deputies and a Highway Patrol officer chased suspected drunken driver Travis Ross on Monday afternoon and shot him when he brandished a rifle.

Ross was taken to a Rapid City hospital. The Rapid City Journal reports that he was not listed on the hospital directory on Tuesday.

The state Division of Criminal Investigation is looking into whether the officers were justified in shooting Ross, who the Journal says has a history of drunken driving arrests. Jackley said Ross has an active warrant for violating parole on a felony drunken driving conviction.
