(KBHB – Sturgis, SD)A Rapid City man was fatally shot by a Rapid City Police officer Friday morning at a Philadelphia Street apartment building. The man, whose name has not been released, was taken to the hospital where he was declared dead.

According to Chief of Police Don Hedrick, police received a report about 5:30 a.m., that a man was running through the hallways of the River Ridge Apartments.

The officer was reportedly confronted by the man who, Hedrick said, “sprinted at the officer.”

After talking to witnesses, police say that earlier, the man was stabbing himself with the knife.

Hedrick says the officer was not injured and administered life saving measures on the suspect after he was shot.
