BILLINGS – Billings police said the victim of a late Monday night shooting died at the hospital.
Lt. Brandon Wooley said in a press release that at 11:35 p.m. officers were sent to a call for a disturbance with a person being held at gunpoint in the 600 block of Samuel Court.
Officers arrived to find a 21-year-old Billings man lying in the street with a gunshot wound.
A 52-year-old man who Wooley described as the shooter was interviewed and released.
The investigation is classified as a homicide, remains on-going and has been assigned to detectives, Wooley said.
Detectives are attempting to determine if the man who was shot was the same man was the subject of a report a few minutes earlier when an employee of a convenience store on Main Street called 911 to report an intoxicated male walking in and out of traffic.
(first report: July 7, 2020 – 8 a.m.)
Police are investigating a shooting late Monday in Billings that sent a man to the hospital.
Sgt. Tina Hoeger said on Twitter that a 21-year-old man suffered a single gunshot wound to the chest at about 11:30 p.m. The incident took place in the 600 block of Samuel Court.
The victim was in critical condition, Hoeger said.
About four hours later, police received a report of shots fired in the 500 block of South 32nd Street. A 28-year-old man was taken by ambulance to the hospital with a head wound, but Hoeger said on Twitter the wound was not from a gunshot.
Two male suspects fled the area on foot and a bicycle and were not immediately located.
