MARION, Mont. (AP) - Deputies are investigating a fight outside a bar in northwestern Montana that left a woman with a gunshot wound to the arm.

Rail Line Tavern in Marion was closing at about 2 a.m. Sunday when an altercation in the parking lot turned violent.

A man fired a handgun, hitting a 30-year-old Bigfork woman in the arm.

Flathead County Sheriff Chuck Curry says they’ve identified a suspect, but no arrests have been made. Curry said witnesses have provided a couple of different versions of what led to the fight.

The injured woman was transported to a Kalispell hospital and then to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle for surgery. Curry said she was in stable condition on Monday.
