A report of shots fired sent law enforcement to a Whitefish area home Monday night.

Flathead County Sheriff Brian Heino said officers arrived on the 1300 block of Prairie View Road around 7:30 p.m. and made several attempts to contact the people inside the home, who they learned had felony warrants.

Search warrants were obtained and after trying to talk to those inside, officers used explosives to breach the front door.

While officers were clearing the house, one suspect unrelated to the incident was arrested on a felony warrant.

The other individuals involved in the original incident were found this morning at a separate location.

No injuries have been reported and the Flathead County Sheriff's Office is investigating.
