Police officer shot during standoff

GREAT FALLS (AP) — Police say two officers were injured, including one who was shot, during a standoff at a home in northern Montana.
Officers with the Great Falls Police Department were helping authorities in the Shelby area with a hostage situation Monday stemming from a homicide earlier that day. Investigators say 50-year-old Richard Moench, of Shelby, barricaded himself inside the home with a female hostage and fired several rounds at the officers, hitting one.
The Great Falls Tribune reports police returned fire and killed Moench, who was suspected in the slaying of 43-year-old Jeromy Bryant, of Kevin, that morning.
Police have not said how the other officer was injured, and both have since returned to duty.
No other information was released.
