CORVALLIS Ravalli County Sheriff Chris Hoffman has released the name of the Missoula man killed Monday morning during an apparent burglary at a private residence between Corvallis and Victor.
Tobias Ian Bishop, 39, was shot by the homeowner about 4 a.m. after entering the residence through a window that he had broken.
Bishop had a long criminal history and was wanted on a warrant in Flathead County, Hoffman said. Bishop had apparently burglarized at least one other home in the vicinity prior to being shot, and had already gathered several chainsaws and other items near his van.
According to Hoffman, evidence gathered so far has revealed that Bishop drove several miles up a private road in a borrowed van, parked the van between two homes and began moving items from the residences to the van.
On Tuesday, Hoffman said the evidence shows that Bishop had been in the area for at least an hour prior to attempting to enter the occupied home where he was shot.
The homeowner told investigators that he initially thought snow was falling from his roof and hitting the ground, but got up to investigate when the noise continued.
After Bishop broke a window and entered the house, the homeowner encountered the intruder inside. The homeowner ordered Bishop not to move, but he allegedly turned toward the homeowner.
Based on the intruders actions, the homeowner feared for his life and shot Bishop with a handgun, the sheriff said. After being shot, Bishop fled through the same broken window and ran a short distance into the yard, where he collapsed and died.

Evil people deserve an evil end.
No luck finding a photo. It doesn’t help that there is a Catholic Bishop named Tobias.

Who’d have guessed?
Good call, Sheriff!
Once again our dysfunctional judicial system recycles a criminal back into society, so the citizenry has to take care of the problem.
Picked the wrong place. He should have broken into that Columbia SC bar. He would be living still.
