August 21, 2018

GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) — Officials in north-central Montana have released the name of a man who was shot and killed by a Great Falls police officer.

The Fergus County Coroner’s Office said 67-year-old Charles A. Marcotte died Sunday evening.

George Littlefield told the Great Falls Tribune that his neighbor, Marcotte, had said “he couldn’t handle it anymore,” as the two men talked on Littlefield’s porch on Sunday.

Littlefield said Marcotte walked away with a gun and told Littlefield not to follow him, but to call 911.

Littlefield says police talked with Marcotte for about an hour but were unable to get him to put down the gun.

Police Chief David Bowen says at least one of the four officers involved is on administrative leave while the shooting is being investigated.
