CCSO deputies attempted to question man, who then shot himself north of Great Falls

Cascade County deputies were searching for and contacted a 46-year-old man around 1 p.m. on Aug. 24.

Deputies from the Cascade County Sheriff’s Office found the man at 6 Country Lane, located at the intersection with Bootlegger Trail, about five miles north of the city limits.

Upon contact with deputies, the man produced a firearm and shot himself, according to release from Undersheriff Dave Phillips.
