Federal authorities say 27-year-old Jason Todd Garreau was also present when another man was shot to death during a shootout near Fort Thompson following a vehicle chase.

KCCR-AM reports 24-year-old John Garreaux, of Dupree, was killed by law enforcement. But the FBI has not released details, including the relationship between the two men.

According to court documents, Garreau was indicted on four counts of assaulting, resisting and impeding federal officers and one count each of possession of a firearm during a crime of violence and felon in possession of a firearm.

He's in the Pierre jail and expected to make an initial appearance Friday.
