12:30 p.m.: Yellowstone County Sheriff's deputies have completed processing the scene where a 47-year-old man was shot and killed Friday night on Homewood Park Drive, Sheriff Mike Linder said early Saturday afternoon.

The man's identity is being withheld until his family has been notified, Linder said. Deputies will continue interviewing people, canvassing the neighborhood and getting the evidence logged in.

No one has been arrested in the shooting, Linder said.

9:30 a.m.: Yellowstone County Sheriff Mike Linder said Saturday morning that no arrests have been made in connection with a Friday night homicide west of Billings.

The identity of the man shot and killed outside a shop on his property on Homewood Park Drive has not been released.

Linder said a man who was detained at the Holiday store at Shiloh Road and Grand Avenue was released. A woman was arrested at the store on an outstanding warrant for revocation of a suspended sentence.

Two vehicles at the Holiday store have been impounded, Linder said.

Investigators were at the shooting scene Saturday morning interviewing the victim's girlfriend and gathering evidence.

OVERNIGHT REPORT: A man was shot and killed outside a shop on his property on Friday night on Homewood Park Drive.

Yellowstone County Sheriff’s Lt. Kent O’Donnell said a 47-year-old man who lived at the residence in the 800 block of Homewood Park Drive was shot several times and died at the scene.

The man’s girlfriend, who lives at the same address, came out to check on the man and reported the incident at 10:46 p.m.

A witness saw a maroon Chevy S-10 pickup, and Billings Police arrested a man and woman driving a truck fitting that description at about 11:10 p.m. at the Holiday store at Shiloh Road and Grand Avenue.

An hour after the arrest, numerous police cars remained at the convenience store.

O’Donnell said because of the vehicle description matched, the two were considered “persons of interest.” The woman was arrested on an outstanding warrant.

Billings Police Sgt. Clyde Reid said the arrests were made in connection with the incident.

County deputies are investigating, O’Donnell said, and it’s still very early in the process.

Deputies remained on scene at press time on Friday, and Sheriff Mike Linder said he was still receiving information from detectives on the scene.

Homewood Park Drive is west of 64th Street West and just south of Grand Avenue.
