GLASGOW, Mont. -- Authorities continue to withhold the name of a gunman who shot and killed an emergency medical technician in Glasgow over the weekend and himself died after a shootout with police.
"The hoped for 2 p.m. release of the name of the gunman did not happen," Samar Fay, editor of the Glasgow Courier and a spokeswoman for Valley County authorities, said late Wednesday afternoon.
"Apparently they have not been able to notify the next of kin," Fay said in an e-mail to Montana news organizations.
Fay on Tuesday identified those injured as Scott Billingsley and his wife Suzanne, a nurse at Frances Mahon Deaconess Hospital where the shooting took place. Scott Billingsley was treated and released, but his wife remains hospitalized.
Killed in Saturday's shooting was 37-year-old Melissa Greenhagen, a part-time EMT and a state District Court clerk. The gunman died after a gunfight with officers.
Authorities say a female nurse and her husband were wounded after rushing to Greenhagen's aid. Their names have not been released.
Berger told the Great Falls Tribune that after the man shot Greenhagen and the two others, the suspect positioned himself on a gravel slope and exchanged gunfire with as many as 30 officers. The shootout lasted roughly half an hour, he said.
The man then ran along the banks of the Milk River to a nearby house. Police tracked him and engaged in a second gunfight, killing the man.
Investigators on Monday were still trying to identify the suspect, whose body was taken to the state crime lab.
Meanwhile, friends and co-workers said Greenhagen became certified as an EMT in December, taking on the job as another way to serve her community. The mother of three boys and one girl also volunteered with Boy Scouts and the Hi-Line Hockey Association.
Glasgow has about 3,500 residents and is about 50 miles south of the Canadian border.
