Newton arrested for shooting near Culbertson, charged with attempted homicide

Posted: Mar 03, 2018 8:13 AM Updated:

A man was arrested in North Dakota on Friday more than a month after he allegedly fired shots at another driver in northeast Montana.

Levi Newton, 23, was apprehended Friday in Williston, North Dakota, according to the Roosevelt County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.

Newton was wanted for a shooting near Culbertson schools in January, according to the Roosevelt County undersheriff.

He faces one count of attempted deliberate homicide and two counts of criminal endangerment.

The undersheriff said the shooting was the culmination of a chase between two vehicles.

Children at the nearby school reported hearing shots fired.

Deputies later stopped a vehicle and approached the driver, who said he had recently been shot at.

Deputies noted that the vehicle did have at least one bullet hole in it, so the vehicle was collected as evidence.

It's unclear what motivated the shooting.

Newton faces extradition to Montana to appear in a Roosevelt County courtroom on the three felony charges.

The undersheriff said Newton is also facing charges in North Dakota.
