Standoff ends after man fires up to 100 rounds

   KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) -- Police in northwestern Montana say a man fired 80 to
100 rounds from his home in Somers on Saturday with a variety of weapons before
an armored vehicle took officers close enough to fire tear gas into the house and
end the standoff.
   The Daily Inter Lake reports that 41-year-old Christopher Cassidy was being held in
the Flathead County Jail on suspicion of felony criminal endangerment.
   Police say Cassidy could face additional charges because the house contained a
marijuana grow operation and police seized 86 plants.
   Police say Cassidy fired rifles and handguns during the five-hour standoff.
   An investigation found no homes or residents in the area were struck by gunfire.
