Two people were killed and one was shot in Trout Creek over the Thanksgiving weekend, according to Sanders County Sheriff Tom Rummel.
On Saturday, at almost 9 p.m., deputies responded to a report that two people had been shot at a house in Trout Creek, according to a post Rummel wrote on the Sanders County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.
One woman was dead and a man was taken to St. Patrick Hospital in Missoula for care for his gunshot wound. The suspect wasn’t at the house.
Two Bear Air helped Sanders County deputies find the suspect, who apparently had committed suicide near the house.
Rummel is withholding the victims’ and suspects' names until family is notified.
