3 men charged in Montana shooting over drug deal

June 12, 2019

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Three men face charges of assault with a weapon for their alleged roles in a shooting during a confrontation over a drug deal at a residence in Shepherd, a community northeast of Billings.

All three suspects remain jailed with bail amounts ranging from $75,000 to $132,000.

Gregory Allen Johnson, James Armstrong Higgins and Kelly Ray Dolman have not yet entered pleas.

Court records say Johnson told investigators that he and two others had gone to the residence to confront a 22-year-old man about an earlier drug deal. The Billings Gazette reports the 22-year-old, a 15-year-old boy and Higgins were injured in the shootout early on June 3.
