Shooting in Lockwood

As of Monday, August 10th, no arrests have been made in Friday's shooting in Lockwood. 

Yellowstone County Sheriff Mike Linder says detectives are still compiling information in the case. Once the investigation is complete, it will be turned over to the county attorney's office to determine whether or not charges will be filed in the case.

Sheriff Linder says the victim is alive, but there is no word on his medical condition at this time.

Around 2:30 Friday afternoon, Yellowstone County Sheriff's deputies were sent out to a report of a possible shooting on Noblewood Dr. in Lockwood.

According to Lieutenant Kent O'Donnell of the Yellowstone County Sheriff's Office, deputies found a 60 year-old man with gunshot wounds. He was transported to a local hospital and is currently undergoing surgery for the wounds.

O'Donnell says the shooting was a result of a disagreement between the homeowner and a construction worker over speeding in the neighborhood. 

At some point, the lieutenant says things escalated and the homeowner produced a gun and shot the construction worker multiple times. 

To the Sheriff's Office knowledge at this time, the construction worker did not have a firearm.

This is a developing story.
