HELENA, Mont. (AP) - Investigators say a man and a woman who were found dead inside a Helena home were apparently shot.

The victims' names have not been released, and investigators have not detailed the circumstances of the shooting. Police say they are not actively looking for a suspect, and there is no concern for public safety.

KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) - Authorities say a suspected drunken driver hit two pedestrians after losing control of his car in northwest Montana. The Daily Inter Lake reports a couple from Marietta, Georgia, was hospitalized with serious injures Saturday after they were struck in downtown Whitefish. The car hit the 55-year-old woman and the 54-year-old man, causing the man to become impaled on a tree branch.

KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) - Glacier National Park officials have lifted tent camping restrictions enacted last month after a grizzly bear became accustomed to people. The Flathead Beacon reports the park lifted the temporarily ban on tents and soft-sided campers at the Many Glacier Campground on Sunday following a two-day blitz by rangers to enforce food storage rules. Officials say a bear had repeatedly entered the campground, and it stole trout from two visitors at one point.
