BILLINGS – Authorities in south-central Montana say they have taken suspects into custody following two Friday morning homicides.

There was no indication of any connection in the two cases, Yellowstone County Sheriff Mike Linder said.

Billings police reported a 33-year-old man died from gunshot wounds following a shooting on the west side of the city at approximately 2 a.m.

A 62-year old man was taken into custody later in the morning for suspected deliberate homicide, police said.

At roughly 6 a.m. in Ballantine, a community about 25 miles east of Billings, an adult woman was reported killed at a trailer court, Linder said.

An adult man was identified as the suspect and taken into custody after being found in the Ballantine vicinity several hours later, he said.

The victims were not immediately identified and in both cases investigations were ongoing.
