Man May Have Shot Himself

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Police officials say there is a high probability the man shot in the leg early Saturday morning was not shot by police, but most likely he shot himself.

Chief Rich St. John says 44-year-old Anthony Kenneth Allen was trying to pull out his gun when it went off.

On Saturday, Police were called to North 29th Street and 3rd Avenue North for a man displaying a gun. Officer Marc Snider heard one gunshot after Allen reached into his waistband. Snider then fired nine rounds. He is on administrative leave as the investigation is ongoing.

Allen is charged with assault on a police officer. No bystanders or police were injured in the confrontation.
