June 6, 2019

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A second suspect has been arrested, and officers are searching for a third in a shootout in Shepherd that left at least three people injured.

The Billings Gazette reports 39-year-old James Higgins was arrested Tuesday in Billings and had an apparent bullet wound to his arm.

Gregory Johnson was arrested Monday, hours after the shooting that injured a man and a teenage boy at a mobile home. Court records say the 40-year-old Johnson told investigators the shooting happened during a confrontation over an earlier drug deal.

Investigators say five people, including a 2-year-old child, were at the home at the time of the shooting.

Johnson and Higgins were arrested on suspicion of felony assault with a weapon.
