Posted: Updated:

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - The Woodbury County attorney is expected to announce his ruling Friday on whether he'll charge a Sioux City police officer who fatally shot a South Dakota man during a traffic stop.

County Attorney Patrick Jennings has scheduled an afternoon news conference to discuss the Dec. 7 shooting of 36-year-old Daniel Riedmann, of Dakota Dunes, South Dakota.

Police have said Officer Dylan Grimsley and his partner learned during the stop of an arrest warrant for Riedmann and a warning that Riedmann was considered armed and dangerous.

Police say Riedmann ignored the officers' commands to show his hands and unlock a door of the vehicle in which he was a passenger. Police say Grimsley shot Riedmann when Riedmann reached for something. Police say a loaded handgun was found in the vehicle.
