MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - Authorities say a man is in custody after two people were found shot to death west of Lolo.

The Missoulian reports (https://goo.gl/Hs9saq ) the victims were found in a cabin behind the Traveler’s Rest Country Store on Highway 12 on Monday afternoon. Their names have not been released.

Brenda Bassett, a spokeswoman for the Missoula County Sheriff’s Office, says officers were called to the scene on a report of a disturbance. A man had barricaded himself in one of the cabins, but a negotiator with the sheriff’s office convinced him to come out.

No other details were released.
