2 suspects in Montana shooting arrested in Seattle

MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) -- A man and a woman suspected in a shooting on Interstate 90 in western Montana have been arrested in a Seattle motel.

The Missoula County Attorney's Office said Monday that 30-year-old Troy Anthony Miller and 34-year-old Katherine Grace Evans were arrested on warrants for attempted deliberate homicide and robbery.

Miller and Evans were arrested by the Pacific Northwest Fugitive Task Force. Missoula detectives are heading to Seattle to interview them.

Police say a man was shot during a robbery along the highway near Turah on Wednesday night. The man survived, but his name and condition have not been released.

Passing motorists contacted police after seeing the wounded man on the side of the highway.
