ROSEBUD, S.D.—The FBI says one person is dead and a tribal police officer is injured following a shooting on the Rosebud Indian Reservation in south central South Dakota.

FBI spokesman Kyle Loven confirmed the death, but declined to release more details, including names.

Loven tells the Argus Leader the officer was shot in the course of a struggle, but would not elaborate on the seriousness of his or her injuries.

Loven says it’s an active investigation.

“It is an active investigation and we are going to conduct our investigation in a very logical protocol, and I’m just not at liberty to divulge those types of details currently,” Loven says, according to the Rapid City Journal.

The Rosebud Indian Reservation, established in 1889, has a population of more than 21,000.
