After an intensive investigation into a shooting on November 27th in Billings, the BPD issued an official account of the events that happened.

According to Lt. Matt Lennick, the BPD patrol was dispatched at 11:19pm to the 4000 block for a shooting.

He said when officers arrived, they found a 26-year-old local Billings man dead from gunshot wounds.

Officers report there were multiple witnesses and the immediate search led them to another address in the 100 block of Hallowell.

They found another subject suffering from a gunshot wound on Hallowell and was taken by ambulance to a local hospital.

Lt. Lennick reports, at this time the initial investigation indicates that a person who was in the area of 2nd Avenue South saw a group of three people approach another person in the area and a fight broke out.

During the fight, one of the people pulled a firearm and shot it. The first subject confronted the group and shots were fired, striking the 26-yearold Billings man who died at the scene.

A third person fled the area and has not been found yet and no arrests have been made but the investigation continues.

Lt. Lennick explains police waited to release information until the crime scene could be fully investigated; it is a large scene that spanned 2nd Avenue South over to Hallowell and took a large numbers of officers to process the area.

Detectives were reportedly on the scene for 17 hours investigating.

No names have been released.
