UPDATE: 10/3/16 - 1:15 p.m. - The BOLO Alert was issued today for Chad Earl Williams, a man who prompted a stand-off with Bozeman Police and Gallatin County Sheriff's office earlier this summer.

On June 28, 2016, Williams surrendered to law enforcement after a standoff near Main Street in Bozeman.

Gallatin County Deputies and officers with the Bozeman Police Department had verified there was a petition to revoke arrest issued on Williams and had responded to a tip that he was in a  residence on Yerger Dr.

Five people were removed from the home and nearby residents were evacuated.

After several hours, Williams turned himself in and walked out of the residence.

In 1996, Williams was sentenced to 50 years in the Montana State Prison with 25 years suspended after he was convicted of shooting Louis Donald Craighead twice in the head and at least once in the stomach while trying to rob him.

The United States Marshals Service in Montana has issued a BOLO Alert (Be-on-the-Lookout) for a man convicted of attempted murder.

Chad Earl Williams is wanted by the Montana Violent Offender Task Force on a probation violation warrant.

According to state prison records, Williams was convicted in Missoula County of attempted murder in 1996.

Williams is described as a 39-year-old white male who is 5'10" tall who weighs 200 pounds and has brown hair and hazel eyes.

Anyone with information about Williams can contact the U.S. Marshals Service at 406-247-7030 or local law enforcement.
