This is the latest in a string of deaths in Billings; a teen was shot and killed on November 3.

Just days earlier, another shooting incident claimed the lives of a 31-year-old Billings man and his 1-year-old son, and another shooting that killed an 18-year old college student in Billings.

The string of shooting deaths led Billings city officials to announce new efforts to combat what they described as the city's growing gang problem.
