Road Rage? The incident ended in a collision where shots were fired then later shots exchanged by a Missoula Police Officer and the suspect with the handgun.
According to Sergeant Travis Welsh from the Missoula Police Department, early this morning at about 3:27 in the morning, the Missoula Police were dispatched to a collision on the 900 block area of North Orange Street.
The complainant stated to dispatch that a driver of the other vehicle displayed and produced a handgun apparently firing several shots into the air.
10 to 15 minutes later, another call came in to dispatch that a man pulled up to another vehicle and brandished a handgun. That vehicle sped away while waving the handgun.
Missoula Police Officers later located the suspected vehicle which was a blue Chevy pickup, which matched the suspect vehicle description from both incidents.
Missoula police initiated a traffic stop, but the driver of the Chevy pickup sped away and refused to pull over.
Missoula police pursued the suspect's vehicle and were finally able to get it stopped on the West end of Otis St.
When Missoula police attempted to detain the suspect, multiple shots were exchanged. The male suspect dropped his gun and then walked away and ignored the Officers commands.
The male suspect was finally detained after a brief physical struggle.
Fortunately, no injuries occurred to any of the Missoula Police Officers that were involved and the suspect was also not injured.
Since a Missoula Police Officer had discharged his weapon during this incident, a "Use Of Force" investigation is being conducted by the Montana Division of Criminal Investigation along with an investigation by the Missoula Police Department.
