12:56 a.m. A 20-year-old man and his significant other were drinking at a man’s house in Creston. The man had an AK-47 rifle hanging on his wall. The 20-year-old said he wanted to shoot it, so they went for a drive. He got out of the car to shoot the gun, but seconds later, he was screaming for help. Somehow he had been shot in the chest. The victim was airlifted to Kalispell Regional Medical Center. The incident is still under investigation.
