The FBI released more details surrounding the shooting in Lodge Grass on Friday that left three dead.

In a press release, FBI stated the three victims -- Nehemiah Broken Rope, 30, Frank Nomee Jr., 27, and Denise Stewart Nomee, 26 --  went to a home on the 200 block of North Helen Street. 

That's where "an altercation took place which resulted in an exchange of gun fire," according to the FBI.

The press release did not indicate how many shots were fired. Broken Rope and Frank Nomee Jr. were taken to the Indian Health Services Hospital at Crow Agency where they died of their wounds.

Denise Stewart Nomee was taken to St. Vincent’s Hospital and died as a result of her wounds. 

Two persons from the house were injured and one remains hospitalized.  

Several witnesses have been interviewed and have provided statements to investigators. 

While the FBI stated no suspects have been identified, 32-year-old Roderick Plentyhawk is named in the BOLO alert sent to law enforcement as a suspect in the murders.
