MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - Law enforcement officers are investigating a shooting in Missoula that sent one person to the hospital.

Missoula County Undersheriff Rick Maricelli says three people are in custody after a shooting that happened inside a vehicle on Monday morning.

Maricelli tells the Missoulian a plumber at Mountain Supply Co. heard what he thought were two loud backfires at about 8:30 a.m. He went outside, saw a pickup truck driving off and found two shell casings. He called 911.

Officers soon spotted the pickup near a convenience store. An approaching deputy saw that one of the occupants had a gun. Maricelli says the people in the truck began fighting and the gun went off.

A man was injured and taken to the hospital. His condition was not immediately known.
