DRUMMOND - Granite County authorities and the Montana Highway Patrol are trying to figure the reasons behind an early morning drive-by shooting just west of Drummond.
The shooting happened around 6:30 a.m. Friday on Interstate 90 three miles west of Drummond, Granite County Sheriff Scott Dunkerson said.
The victims' car was headed westbound when a pickup truck came up from behind and then pulled alongside, Dunkerson said. The suspect then reportedly fired a shot into the driver's side of the victim's car. The shot shattered the car's window but didn't hit the driver who was able to pull over and stop.
MHP troopers and deputies responded to the scene and were able to arrest the suspect who also wasn't injured.
Deputies and troopers are still trying to work out a motive for the shooting and determine whether the suspect and the victim knew one another, Dunkerson said.
