The Missoula County Sheriff's Office says the suspect in a multi-hour manhunt in East Missoula has been apprehended. 

The following is an update from the MCSO Facebook Page: "Fugitive William Newhoff was apprehended by Missoula County Deputies without incident in East Missoula. It is believed there is no further danger to the public. We would like to thank all agencies, as well as the public that assisted in apprehending him."

The pursuit began this morning, when deputies found the subject, William "Billy" Dale Newhoff, at the Aspen Motel.
