Sep. 23-An Olney woman is behind bars for allegedly shooting a man during a disturbance in the community north of Whitefish on Friday, authorities said.

Kay Johnson, 64, faces a pending felony charge of assault with a weapon following the incident. She is being held in county jail awaiting a court appearance.

Authorities arrested Johnson after deputies with the Flathead County Sheriff's Office, aided by Montana Highway Patrol, responded to Olney for a report of a shooting on Sept. 23. In a press release issued later the same day, authorities said that accounts of the incident indicated that a woman shot a man in the stomach during a disturbance. The victim survived the gunshot wound, fled to a neighbor's home and later received medical care, officials said.

Investigators identified Johnson as the suspect. After receiving a medical evaluation, she was turned over to the Sheriff's Office for questioning by detectives and eventually brought to the detention center, officials said.

The shooting remains under investigation. Authorities urge anyone with information to call (406) 758-5600 or email TIPS@flathead.mt.gov.
