Old West Re-enactor Faces Federal Weapons Charge

Wednesday, 27 Jul 2011 05:12 PM

 

SIOUX FALLS — A mock Old West gun battle participant accused of wounding three South Dakota tourists by firing live ammunition instead of blanks is facing a federal weapons charge.

U.S. Attorney's office spokesman Mark Salter says 49-year-old Paul Doering of Summerset made an initial appearance in a court in Fargo, N.D., Wednesday morning on a federal felon in possession of a firearm charge. He did not give a plea.

Salter says an indictment was issued last week but sealed by the federal court.

Three tourists were hit during the June 17 reenactment staged by the Dakota Wild Bunch, who use blanks when they perform several times a week on a street in the tourist town of Hill City.

Doering is ordered to appear in federal court in Rapid City on Aug. 11.
