Community begins healing process after officer-involved shooting

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

Sunday night, a man was shot and killed by a Bureau of Indian Affairs Officer. KULR-8 headed to Lodge Grass to see how the town is holding up.

It's been less than 2 days since a BIA officer shot and killed 36-year-old Ruben Clint Stewart here on the corner of George Street and Hester Avenue in Lodge Grass. The community of Lodge Grass is made up of 450 people.

"A part of who they are is family, coming together, feeds, and laughing," Mayor Dabney of Lodge Grass said. "Stuff like that. That's who this community is."

Mayor Dabney said because the community is like one big family, everyone is hurting.

"So there we are," Mayor Dabney said. "Left out in the dark here. Left out in the dark every single time an incident happens, and we have to move on. There's always that question in the back of our heads- 'I wonder what happened?'

He said moving forward, the community will try to mend the broken heart of the Crow Reservation.

"We're here for each other and let's just see what happens," Mayor dabney said.

KULR-8 spoke to one of the family members who said the funeral will be held this Friday in Crow Agency at 11 A.M.
