Armed Defense in Montana

An Armed Citizen Saved Countless Lives in Montana.

From our good friend Gary Marbut of Montana Shooting Sports Association:


Confirmed: There was a shooting incident in Glasgow, Montana on Saturday
afternoon. Besides the shooter, one person was killed and two were
injured. Police locked down the community, warned people to lock doors
and stay inside, and followed a blood trail which eventually led to the
deceased shooter.

Unconfirmed but probable: The shooter made his attack at a local
hospital and killed a female Emergency Medical Technician. Scott
Billingsly was present because his wife works at the hospital. Scott has
a Montana concealed weapon permit, was armed, and engaged the shooter in
defense of himself and others. Scott was injured in the hand and Scott's
wife was also injured. The shooter was seriously injured and was driven
off by Scott's armed engagement of the shooter. The seriously wounded
shooter sought shelter, leaving the blood trail that law enforcement
followed, where they found the shooter dead of a possibly self-inflicted
gunshot wound.

The people of Glasgow who know these details are highly thankful that an
armed citizen was present and able to interdict the killer before he
could kill more than the one person murdered, possibly saving the lives
of many other hospital employees.
