BUTTE — Philip Sundberg of Anaconda has been arrested in connection with a drive-by shooting last week.

He is accused of firing six shots from a high-powered rifle at an occupied home in the 1000 block of East 4th Street in Anaconda on August 11th, according to Anaconda Police Detective Kyle Staley.

Three of the shots hit the house; there were no injuries.
