January 4, 2019

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — A Rapid City man accused of firing numerous shots during a four-hour standoff with police is facing 16 charges.

Thirty-year-old Jordan Wounded Face appeared in court via video from the Pennington County Jail Thursday when a $250,000 cash bond was set. The Pennington County State’s Attorney’s Office charged Wounded Face with seven counts of firing a gun at an occupied structure or vehicle, seven counts of recklessly firing a gun, aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer and an inhaling charge.

Court documents say the defendant’s mother called police New Year’s Day, saying she may have heard gunshots. Wounded Face is accused of firing a gun after officers responded to the home.

The Rapid City Journal says Wounded Face eventually surrendered after gas cartridges were deployed into the home.
