BOZEMAN — Two people were shot in Bozeman on Sunday night, according to a news release from the Bozeman Police Department.

Police officers responded at about 10:15 p.m. to the Bozeman Pond walking trail along the 600 block of South Fowler Avenue after receiving a report that two adults had been shot.

When officers found the two victims, they were being cared for by nearby residents.

The two victims were taken to a Bozeman hospital for treatment, and both are expected to survive.

Police officers, with the assistance of MSU police, the Montana Highway Patrol, and the Gallatin County Sheriff's Office, conducted an extensive search of the area, but were not able to find the suspect.
