KALISPELL – A Martin City man could face life in prison if convicted in a fatal shooting that happened in Hungry Horse last week.

47-year-old James William Quen of Martin City was charged with deliberate homicide.

Flathead County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a home in Hungry Horse around 11:40 p.m. last Wednesday after a caller reported a shooting. Deputies arrived to find Bradley Allen Winters, 33, of Hungry Horse dead from a single gunshot wound to the chest.

According to court documents, there was an altercation between the suspect and the victim over money. At one point the suspect pulled out a handgun firing several rounds.

Flathead County Sheriff Chuck Curry says the last round struck the victim in the chest.

Quin was taken into custody at his home about an hour later.

Investigators are still looking for two possible witnesses. Anyone with information to help connect the Flathead County Sheriff’s Office with Shivaun Crothers and Ronald Kevin Lindsey is requested to contact 406-752-TIPS.
