Police Shoot Montana Man After He Fires More Than 50 Shots
BUTTE, Mont. (AP) — Authorities say a man barricaded inside a western Montana home fired between 50 and 60 shots before police shot him.
The Montana Standard reports the man had locked himself inside a Deer Lodge home Monday morning following an argument with a woman the night before.
Police say he began firing two guns. He then started shooting out a broken window when city and county officers arrived at the home.
Powell County Sheriff Scott Howard says a Deer Lodge officer shot the man.
Howard says the man called 911 for help, telling authorities he was no longer armed.
He was taken to a hospital and underwent surgery. He had a shrapnel wound to his eye and his right arm was severely injured.
Authorities haven't identified the man.
