LODGE GRASS, Mont. -

UPDATE: The man killed in Sunday's shooting with a Bureau of Indian Affairs officer is identified as 36-year-old Ruben Stewart of Lodge Grass. 

The BIA officer has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation, per BIA standard protocol. 

Senator Jon Tester's office assisted KULR-8 in getting BIA's protocols of officer-involved shootings. Below is the information provided to Sen. Tester's office. 

After a BIA Officer is involved in a shooting the officer is placed on administrative leave pending an investigation and review by the US Attorney’s office. The FBI conducts the investigation into the shooting and will submit their report to the US Attorney’s Office once completed. The US Attorney will review and determine if there are any criminal charges are warranted or not. The BIA officer will remain on administrative leave until cleared by the US Attorney’s office or if the report shows some wrong doing on the part of the officer, corrective action will be initiated. At the conclusion of the criminal investigation by the FBI, BIA Internal Affairs Division will conduct an administrative investigation into the shooting to determine if policies and procedures were followed. 


An officer-involved shooting in Lodge Grass leaves one man dead.

Reports of the shooting came into the KULR-8 newsroom shortly before 8:00 PM.

Lodge Grass Mayor Quincy Dabney confirms that one person was shot multiple times by a responding officer.

Mayor Dabney tells KULR-8 he knows the person shot and that he grew up with the man. Mayor Dabney calls the situation "heartbreaking" and says he "can't wait for the truth to come out."

The person shot was allegedly carrying a knife.

Witnesses tell KULR-8 that the man was drunk and disorderly outside of the home, went into the home, and then came back outside with a knife. That's when a BIA agent allegedly shot him.

Family members tell KULR-8 that man with the knife was shot multiple times.

BIA cannot confirm witness accounts at this time.

BIA and Big Horn County deputies are not commenting beyond the fact that this is a federal investigation.

Mayor Dabney says the community of Lodge Grass is continuing to heal following a triple homicide there last August.

As of 10:00 PM police were actively working the scene.

This is a developing story. KULR-8 will continue to gather information and will have an update on Wake Up Montana.
