A Poplar man is reported to be recovering in a Billings hospital after being shot in his home Monday, April 28.
Fort Peck Tribes Department of Law and Justice investigator Ken Trottier said a male juvenile from Poplar was arrested and being held in tribal custody.
He said the incident happened about 8 a.m. at the Gateway Apartments in Poplar.
The unidentified 20-year-old victim was flown to Billings for medical treatment and is expected to recover, Trottier said.
“We don’t know if alcohol or drugs are a factor,” he said.
The incident is under investigation by tribal authorities and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The FBI did not respond to a request for comment.
