BUSBY – A standoff that followed a shooting and pursuit in Busby overnight ended with the arrest of several suspects, the Yellowstone County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday.

The incident began with a shooting in Busby sometime before 10 p.m. Wednesday.

The Yellowstone County Sheriff’s Office reported one person was injured in the shooting, but the extent of that person’s injuries are unclear.

Law enforcement from the Big Horn County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene, which lead to a pursuit.

The FBI said Thursday that two individuals barricaded themselves in the home.

BIA officers were also involved and the FBI is investigating.

The Yellowstone County Sheriff’s Office said no law enforcement fired a weapon.
