Charges filed in fatal Pine Ridge reservation shooting

KYLE (AP) — A 19-year-old man has been charged in a fatal shooting on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

Palani Bull Bear-Gardipe is accused of killing 19-year-old Brycee Red Owl last month in Kyle during a confrontation. A court filing by the FBI says Red Owl was found June 27 with three gunshot wounds to the chest, wrist and back. The defendant was arrested the following day.

Red Owl's horse suffered serious wounds in the shooting and had to be euthanized.

Bull Bear-Gardipe is scheduled for a July 18 preliminary hearing.
