Protesters decry deputy's shooting of Native American


A protest march down Haines Avenue transformed itself into a long line of grieving, angry mourners Tuesday at the Mother Butler Center when about 60 mostly Native American protesters greeted the parents of a young Lakota man who was shot and killed by a Pennington County deputy on May 2. People lined up to offer Jerry and Jaylene Capps of Rapid City hugs, support and sympathy.
