Two people were shot at a Missoula convenience store early Tuesday morning but the suspected shooters fled the scene before police officers arrived.

Both victims — an employee and a customer — were taken to the hospital. Sgt. Travis Welsh said Tuesday afternoon that the employee had been released after treatment but he had no information on the condition of the customer, who remained hospitalized.

The Missoula Police Department reported that at 3:48 a.m. Tuesday, officers responded to a report of shots fired at a convenience store in the 2400 block of South Higgins Avenue.

When they arrived, officers learned that two suspects had entered the store, one of whom was armed.

One suspect was described as being taller than 6 feet, muscular, and wearing a dark-colored hoodie. The second suspect was described as being shorter, also wearing a dark hoodie, and carrying a gun.

Welsh said detectives are continuing to investigate. Anyone with information is asked to call either Detective Ben Slater at 406-552-6282, or Detective Mitch Lang at 406-552-6292.
