Man shot by police makes first court appearance

Posted:

The man shot by a Rapid City police officer outside of the public library made his first court appearance Thursday morning. Elijah White Magpie, 20, was shot in February by veteran officer Jerry Moore.

Via closed circuit television from the Pennington County Jail, White Magpie stood from his wheel chair to hear his rights from a magistrate court judge.  He acknowledged the charges and stated that he had applied for an attorney.

An arraignment date has not been set.

Magpie was released from the hospital Wednesday and immediately taken into custody. He's charged with one count of attempted 1st degree murder, an alternate count of aggravated assault on a police officer, and intentional damage to public property. No bond is set.

White Magpie faces more than 25 years in prison if convicted on all charges.

(Original Story)

At 6:15pm Wednesday, Elijah White Magpie was taken into custody by Pennington County deputies at Rapid City Regional Hospital and charged with one count of attempted 1st degree murder, two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer, one count of intentional damage to public property (felony) and one count intentional damage to private property (misdemeanor).

White magpie was transported to the Pennington County Jail where he is being held with no bond. The charges stem from the incident involving two Rapid City police officers on February 21st. Attempted 1st degree murder and aggravated assault on a police officer are both class 2 felonies, punishable up to 25 years in the state penitentiary.

White Magpie will make his initial appearance on these charges at a later date. The Pennington County Sheriff's Office is assisting the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation with the investigation regarding the incident.
