Charges Could Change For Accused Shooter

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

One victim of Friday's shooting in Bozeman died over the weekend at a Seattle hospital.

ABC FOX Montana talked to the Gallatin County Attorney, who said he is expecting to amend the charges against the accused shooter.

Still, one victim shows signs he is recovering from his wounds.

The 24-year-old man shot in his abdomen Friday morning died in a Seattle hospital Saturday.

Authorities are yet to release the victim's name to the public and the King County Medical Examiner's office in Seattle could not confirm any more information about his death.

The shooting happened after an argument at the end of a party in the 100 block of Ferguson around 4 a.m. Friday.

After getting in a fist fight and leaving, witnesses said 25-year-old Cody Little returned with a 20-gage shot gun.

Documents say he fired the weapon three times; once in the ground, once in a man's abdomen and the third into the leg of James Armstrong.    

Police arrested little at the scene, but Armstrong continues the long road to recovery.

Monday, friends said the 24-year-old is showing signs of improvement at a Billings hospital.

They say blood is now flowing to his leg and he is no longer in danger of losing the limb.

Little is charged with two counts of attempted deliberate homicide and one count of assault with a weapon.

Gallatin County Attorney Marty Lambert told me he plans to amend the charges against him, but wasn't sure when that would happen.

Family and friends say they have not yet made funeral arrangements for the deceased victim.

Little currently remains at the Gallatin County Detention Center on a $1,250,000 bond.
