Butte woman shot in robbery attempt at taxi office
BUTTE, Mont. (AP) -- Law enforcement officers in Butte are searching for a man
who shot a woman three times during a robbery attempt at a taxi service office.
Capt. Doug Conway says the man fired four rounds Thursday night and hit the
woman three times. Sheriff Ed Lester says the woman was in stable condition at St.
James Healthcare with non-life-threatening injuries.
Officers say a man wearing a hard hat, a scarf over his face and a camouflaged
jacket entered Mining City Taxi at about 7:20 p.m. The woman apparently fled
outside, where she was shot.
