  • 0

A man suspected in the shooting of two other males in the area of the Rose Park Plaza Apartments was arrested on Saturday night, according to the Billings Police Department. 

BPD received report of multiple gunshots, said Sgt. Clyde Reid. Officers were dispatched to the 2300 block of Avenue C at 6:08 p.m., according to a press release written by Lt. David Cardillo of the BPD Detectives Division.

One of the victims was shot multiple times and his wounds were life-threatening when he was transported to St. Vincent Healthcare, according to the release. The other victim was shot once and his injury was not life-threatening. He was also taken to St. Vincent Healthcare. The wounds appeared to be in the torso, Reid said.

"As soon as officers showed up, people pointed him out," Reid said of the suspect. He was in possession of a gun when police approached him but was arrested without incident, Reid said. The suspect was booked into the Yellowstone County Detention Facility on two counts of felony assault, according to the release.

Police believe the shooting was preceded by a verbal disturbance of some sort and the investigation has been turned over to detectives, Reid said. 

Crime scene tape could later be seen blocking off a portion of the 2300 block of Avenue C near the Rose Park Plaza Apartments. 

An adult woman, described by Reid as a relative of an involved party, was also arrested, for "causing a verbal disturbance."
