BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A day after federal prosecutors said they could not prove who was responsible for a triple homicide on the Crow Indian Reservation last August, the tribal chairman said he will do everything in his power to make sure justice was done.

The federal government has jurisdiction over felony crimes on reservations, but U.S. Attorney Kurt Alme said Friday it was impossible to prove who shot whom and in what order.

Investigators said the three victims forcibly entered the house in Lodge Grass with at least one gun and that one of the occupants also had a gun. Two people were injured.

The house burned down days after the shooting.

Alvin “A.J.” Not Afraid said Saturday he was referring the case to tribal law enforcement and asked anyone with information to contact the Crow chief of police.
