MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - Police are investigating after a man who died of an apparent gunshot wound was brought to St. Patrick Hospital in Missoula.

Detective Sgt. Scott Pastian said officers were working with police in Spokane, Washington, to investigate the possibility that the shooting occurred there. He says the victim was driven to Missoula from Spokane on Sunday and either died on the way or was deceased for the entire trip.

Pastian said officers were investigating the death as a homicide. They were interviewing the driver and the victim’s family. No immediate arrests were made.

Missoula County sheriff’s spokeswoman Brenda Basset said the victim’s name would have to be released by the Spokane County coroner since the death apparently occurred there.

An autopsy was planned Monday.
