LOGAN - A man was shot after reportedly trespassing at home near Logan this morning.
At around 5 a.m. Friday, Oct. 26, 911 received a call from the Trailways Bus Company from someone who said that a man had become disorderly on the bus and had been dropped off near mile post 282 on Interstate 90.
Then, at around 5:22 a.m., the 911 center received a call from a residence on Carpenter Lane near Logan of a criminal trespass in progress. Minutes later, 911 received a second call from the same residence from someone calling to report that that trespasser had been shot by a resident at that location.
Gallatin County Sheriff's Office deputies, fire and EMS personnel arrived on scene and found a male subject with a gunshot wound who was treated and taken into custody. The man was then transported to the Bozeman Deaconess Hospital.
The man, whose name authorities are not releasing at this time, is in custody at the hospital this afternoon, Gallatin County Undersheriff Dan Springer. He is expected to be charged.
It is unsure at this time if the person who shot the man will face charges. Springer said that will be decided during the investigation. The incident is currently under investigation by the Gallatin County Sheriff's Detective Division.
