KALISPELL — Authorities have identified Matthew David Hurley as the man who was shot and killed in Kalispell on Thursday, September 16, 2021.

Hurley, 27 years old, was from Kalispell.

The bystander sustained a gunshot wound during the exchange; that person was taken to Logan Health for treatment of injuries and has since been released, according to Kalispell Police Chief Doug Overman.

The suspect remains hospitalized in critical care and is under law enforcement supervision; the suspect's name has not yet been released.
