3 dead, including a child, in a shooting at the Blackfoot Indian Reservation in Montana

Two men and an 18-month-old child were fatally shot over the weekend on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation in Montana, authorities said Monday.

The shooting happened around 10 p.m. Sunday in the community of East Glacier Park, just outside Glacier National Park, FBI spokeswoman Sandra Barker said.

Two injured women were airlifted to hospital for treatment and at least one of them was shot dead, she said.

There was no longer a threat to public safety and no search was underway for suspects, Barker said. She declined to divulge more information, citing the investigation into the murders.

The reservation in northwest Montana is home to the Blackfeet Nation of 17,000 people. It borders Glacier National Park to the west and Canada to the north.
