BILLINGS- The Yellowstone County Sheriff's Office is asking for assistance in locating several individuals in connection to a shooting in Lockwood last week.
According to Yellowstone County Sheriff Mike Linder, his office is looking for the victim, a person of interest and two potential witnesses.
52-year-old Walter White was shot while at his business at 1270 Lockwood Road around 4:30 on the morning of Tuesday, January 29th.
Linder says White has not been heard from or seen since he was discharged from a Billings hospital the day following the shooting.
The Yellowstone County Sheriff's Office does not believe White has returned to his property since the shooting.

The sheriff's office is also looking for 23-year-old Brandon White, Walter's son.

Linder says his office is also on the lookout for a man named Kurt Whitling.
Whitling was also believed to have been in the area at the time of the shooting.

The sheriff says Matney's name was brought up at some point during the investigation.
