Mont. EMT shot in back as leaving hospital
GREAT FALLS, Mont. — A Glasgow hospital official says the woman killed in a sniper-style shooting in the hospital's parking lot had just returned from an emergency call when she was shot in the back.
The victim, 37-year-old Melissa Greenhagen, was a part-time emergency medical technician and Valley County's clerk of state District Court.
Clay Berger, emergency medical services director at Frances Mahon Deaconess Hospital, told the Great Falls Tribune that Greenhagen was walking to her car when she was fatally shot Saturday evening.
A female nurse and her husband were wounded after rushing to her aid. The two haven't been identified.
Officers killed the suspect after two gun battles one outside the hospital and another at a nearby house where the suspect fled after being injured. Investigators were still trying to identify the suspect Monday.
It has been reported by a Montana gun rights organization that the husband is a CWP holder and shot the suspect, allowing LEOs to follow a blood trail.
