RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — Authorities say they've that one of the participants in a mock Old West gun battle in South Dakota fired live ammunition instead of using blanks, wounding three tourists.
More than 100 people attended the show a week ago staged by the Dakota Wild Bunch re-enactors, who perform several times a week in Hill City, a tourist town in the Black Hills.
The Pennington County Sheriff Kevin Thom was to release a statement with more details later Friday.
There was no immediate comment from re-enactors. On their Facebook page, the group has said they are not allowed to bring live rounds to their performances.
