RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Authorities say the 22-year-old suspect in Tuesday's shooting of three Rapid City police officers had spent more than two years in jail and prison.

The Rapid City Journal (http://bit.ly/n8CHfe ) says court and corrections records show that Daniel Tiger pleaded guilty or no contest to more than a dozen charges since 2007 including simple assault, simple assault against a law enforcement officer, petty theft and disorderly conduct.

Police say Tiger pulled a handgun and fired on officers James Ryan McCandless, Nick Armstrong and Tim Doyle. They had received complaints about the group and determined a minor alcohol violation had been committed.

McCandless died from his injuries. Armstrong was in critical condition at Rapid City Regional Hospital on Thursday and Doyle was in fair condition. Police say Tiger died Wednesday.
