Montana Triple Murder Suspect Captured In Spokane Valley

LODGE GRASS, Mont. (AP) - A 22-year-old man suspected of gunning down three people on Montana's Crow Reservation was captured on Wednesday near the Spokane Valley Mall. He's been identified as Sheldon Bernard Chase. Multiple agencies locally, nationally and regionally worked together to capture Chase.

The FBI said Chase is suspected of using a rifle Tuesday afternoon to kill his 80-year-old grandmother, Gloria Sarah Goes Ahead Cummins; his cousin, 21-year-old Levon Driftwood; and her boyfriend, 20-year-old Rueben Jefferson.

The shootings happened at Cummins' home about 10 miles outside Lodge Grass, a town of 500 people near the Wyoming border.

Schools on reservations in southeastern Montana and western North Dakota were closed and residents stayed indoors for safety.
