Several people are in custody after an early-morning burglary and shooting in Flathead County.

According to Undersheriff Brian Heino, the initial offense led to the shooting and ended up with law enforcement officials from the county, Montana Highway Patrol and Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks searching for the people that were allegedly involved.

“We’re still trying to piece together exactly what happened, and when we do, we’ll be able to explain more,” Heino said.

Several suspects were arrested in the West Valley area on KM Ranch Road and Spring Prairie Road.

According to Brandy Hinzman of the Sheriff’s Office, there were no injuries involving the people involved in the shooting or law officers. She said there were three vehicles involved.
