KALISPELL – A 22-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a report of “multiple shots fired” in the area of Valley and Willow Glen drives around 7:30 Thursday night.

Flathead County Sheriff Brian Heino warned people to avoid the area and set up roadblocks while deputies staged near the South Kalispell Fire Hall.

Heino says only one person is believed to be involved in the incident, and a SWAT team along with a negotiator was called in.

The man was taken into custody around 8:15 p.m, and Heino says the area is now safe. Details are limited at this time but we will update this story as needed.
