BILLINGS - Billings police investigated a fatal shooting on the 200 block of South 27th Street on Wednesday night.

Details were limited, but police said on social media they received a call of a man shot near the Colonial Apartments around 8 p.m.

The man was taken to the hospital, where he died.

Police do not have a suspect, and the investigation is continuing.

The Colonial Apartments are a hot spot for police calls. In the first six months of this year, police responded to the complex 110 times, according to a report compiled by a concerned neighbor and submitted to the Billings City Council.

This was the second shooting Billings police investigated Wednesday night. About three hours earlier around 5 p.m., police responded to a shooting at a residence on King Arthur Drive in the Heights.

One man was taken to the hospital, and a suspect was arrested at the scene.

Police gave no indication the two shootings were related.
