MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) – A procession of Montana law enforcement vehicles escorted the body of slain Broadwater County Sheriff’s Deputy Mason Moore to the morgue at St. Vincent Healthcare in Billings for an autopsy. The procession arrived in Billings at around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Firefighters raised a large American flag from a ladder truck as the procession moved up North 27th Street. Moore was shot at about 3 a.m. during a traffic stop near Three Forks. One suspect has been arrested after a pursuit that spanned five counties. The other was shot in the head and was hospitalized in Missoula.
