Senior High security cameras assist with Billings drive-by shooting investigation

BILLINGS - Police haven't identified any suspects in the Saturday evening drive-by shooting on Grand Avenue, but they have identified a vehicle.

"Either an Eagle Vision, a Dodge Concord, something of that nature," said police department spokesman Lt. Kevin Iffland. "Lighter colored or white vehicle, four-door."

Iffland said that officers thought they had found the vehicle on Tuesday, but it did not turn out to belong to any suspect.

The suspect vehicle was identified by security cameras outside of Senior High School. Though the shooting took place in front of the school, the incident was not related to the school, Iffland said.

Cameras also confirmed the account of events given by 20-year-old victim Torry Rockroads.

Rockroads told police that his assailants shot at him from a moving vehicle as he was walking down Grand Avenue at about 6 p.m. Saturday.

Rockroads said the shooter fired six or seven shots at Rockroads, one of which hit him in the foot. He was treated at Billings Clinic.

It is believed that Rockroads was released from the hospital Tuesday evening, but Iffland said that cannot be confirmed.

"(He's) been cooperative at this point," Iffland said.

Rockroads is working with police to find the shooter, someone that Rockroads said he did not recognize the night of the shooting.

Police are encouraging anyone with information to call detectives at (406) 657-8473.
