BUTTE — A Dillon man remains hospitalized after being shot by Dillon police last week in an armed standoff.

The shooting victim has been identified as 32-year-old Jordan Scott Schryver, according to the Beaverhead County Attorney’s Office.

Schryver was shot by a Dillon police officer the evening of January 6th after police responded to a disturbance call on Kentucky Avenue.

The officer, accompanied by two Beaverhead County Sheriff’s deputies, knocked on the door of the residence and Schryver allegedly came to the door with a gun in his waistband. The officer ordered him to put his hands up; Schryver is accused of drawing his gun from his waistband before being shot.

Schryver was taken to Barrett Hospital in Dillon, and then airlifted to St. Patrick’s Hospital in Missoula, where he remains as of Wednesday.

The state Department of Criminal Investigation is investigating the shooting.

County Attorney Jed Fitch says his office is expected to file charges against Schryver in this incident.

No other details have been released at this point.
