MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - Authorities have identified the person who was killed in an officer-involved shooting in Missoula over the weekend.

Missoula County Undersheriff Rich Maricelli said Monday that 49-year-old Jenessa Cooper died after officers responded to reports of a disturbance in a home on Sunday.

The Missoulian reports that responding officers found a person with a gun and that shots were fired. No officers were injured.

A sheriff’s office statement had no additional details.

Missoula Police Department spokesman Travis Welsh previously said he could not say who fired the shot that killed the person. Welsh said there was no active threat to the public.

Justin Owens, who lives in an apartment building next door, told the newspaper he thought he heard four shots.

State authorities are investigating the shooting.
