The man, whose name has not been released, was transported to St. Peters 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.
“Nice grouping, gramps.”
"With friends like that..."
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.
At least there is a live injured party and not a dead one this time.
Miss the Big Sky country. Guns, alcohol, and all :-).
