Police are looking for two people who were allegedly involved with a shooting following a “road rage” incident on Hutton Ranch on Wednesday.

Michael John Ince and Erin Elizabeth Carnahan have been identified by the Kalispell Police Department as “people of interest” following the incident on Sept. 30.

According to a press release, Kalispell Police were dispatched to a road rage incident in progress on U.S. Highway 93 shortly before 5 p.m. While on the phone with dispatch, and before police arrived, the reporting party stated that someone in a blue Dodge Caravan ported a gun at him. The person then allegedly fired at the reporting party and a bullet shattered his car window. The blue van left the scene shortly before police arrived.

Officers made contact with the victim who reported that there were two or three people inside the van at the time of the shooting.

With assistance from the Flathead County Sheriff’s Office and Montana Highway Patrol, police tracked down the van in the Evergreen area on Wednesday evening, however, they are still looking for Ince and Carnahan.

“It’s still under investigation but at least no one was injured,” said detective Andy Haag.

If anyone has any information regarding the location of either Ince or Carnahan they are encouraged to call the Kalispell Police Department at (406) 758-7780 or at (406) 752-8477.
