Authorities have released some new details in Sunday's shooting in Helena that happened when officers responded to a report of a domestic disturbance.
The call came in at around 1 pm from a neighbor who reported hearing yelling and screaming at an apartment in the 700 block of 6th Avenue.
Two officers responded and while they were at the scene, a struggle broke out with the man, who has now been identified as 24 year old Joshua D. Gray.
Gray is said to have at least one self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest.
Several more police officers then converged on the apartment, and the area was sealed off for several hours as authorities conducted their investigation.
The woman involved in the incident, identified as Angelica Gray, was not injured, and neither were any of the police officers.
Gray was initially taken to St. Peter's Hospital in Helena, which has a Level III trauma center, and was then transported to Benefis hospital in Great Falls, which has a Level II trauma center and is able to handle more serious injuries.
Authorities have not released any information about Gray's medical condition at this point.
Since the incident involves Helena police officers, the Montana Department of Criminal Investigation has been called to assist in the matter.
The Lewis & Clark County Attorney's office has been notified, but at this time, no charges have yet been filed.
We will update you as we learn more.
