Officer Involved in Shooting Back on the Job


A 6-year veteran of the Flathead County Sheriffs Department is back on duty after firing his weapon twice at a suicidal suspect in October.

Sheriffs say an internal review showed deputy Caleb Pleasants did not deviate from policy when he shot 54-year-old Michelle Gentry. Officers tried negotiating with Gentry for hours on October 11 when she unexpectedly left her home and approached officers. Gentry was armed and Pleasants saw her as a threat. He fired twice.

At last check Gentry was on the road to recovery at a Flathead hospital.
