MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - Law enforcement officers in western Montana have identified the gunman in a Thanksgiving weekend murder-suicide that left another man injured.

Sanders County Sheriff Tom Rummel says 64-year-old William Tyree got into a heated argument with 83-year-old Charles Moore at a residence near Trout Creek on the night of Nov. 25. Moore was shot in the shoulder and is recovering from wound.

Rummel says Tyree also shot and killed a woman at the residence and fled before officers arrived. Searchers found Tyree’s body nearby. He had died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The woman’s family did not want her name released.
