Suspect in reservation shooting waives preliminary hearing

Posted: Updated:

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A 23-year-old man suspected of fatally shooting a man on the Yankton Sioux Reservation in southeastern South Dakota has waived a preliminary hearing.

Dancing Bull Fischer made his first appearance in federal court Wednesday in Sioux Falls. He's being held on a second-degree murder charge in the Tuesday morning shooting of 47-year-old Tony Fischer Sr. inside a Lake Andes trailer home in Charles Mix County near Marty.

A second man shot, Dominic Fischer, is in critical condition at a Sioux Falls hospital.

Dancing Bull Fischer's court-appointed attorney asked to waive the hearing.

According to the arrest affidavit, a witness told the FBI the men had been drinking together in the home. He told agents that he heard four or five gunshots and found Dancing Bull Fischer holding an assault rifle.
