Investigation continues into shooting death near Vaughn

Posted: Updated:

VAUGHN - The Cascade County Sheriff's office is investigating a shooting near Vaughn that left one person dead on Wednesday.

Dispatchers received a 911 call just after 2 p.m. from a residence on Four Mile Creek Road.

Cascade County Sheriff Bob Edwards says they found a deceased person when they arrived on scene. He says officers also recovered a weapon from the residence but did not provide any other details.

The investigation is in the preliminary stages and Sheriff Edwards says no arrests were made on Wednesday.

"We do have folks going to the Sheriff's office to be interviewed at this point, there is no danger to the community out here, I think we've got that all under control, so we're not looking for any outstanding person or persons of interest at this time," said Edwards.

Edwards says an autopsy will most likely occur. He says in that event, the body will be taken to one of the state labs in Missoula or Billings.

Authorities have not yet released any information about the identity of the victim.
