A 53-year-old Helena man was shot multiple times in the leg during an altercation at a home in the Skelly Gulch area off of Austin Road Thursday night.

The man, whose name has not been released, was transported to St. Peter’s Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition Friday evening, Lewis and Clark County Sheriff Leo Dutton said.

A 72-year-old man called 911 at 6:18 p.m. to report he had shot someone in his home, Dutton said.

The men were friends, Dutton said, adding that alcohol was a factor in the altercation, which may have involved multiple handguns. Dutton said self-defense has not been ruled out in the incident.

“All parties have been identified and we are working through the scene,” Dutton said. “We are trying to find out what provoked this.”

No charges have been filed. The shooting remains under investigation.

Not a good way to end an argument. Unless of course the argument was about a criminal losing the argument to rob, rape or murder you.

Seeing as how alcohol was involved, they probably won't remember much (until they start drinking again).

Wouldn't be the first time Helena has seen alcohol and guns mix. Uh duh! It's MONTANA!

At least there is a live injured party and not a dead one this time.

Miss the Big Sky country. Guns, alcohol, and all :-).
