Update 8:20 p.m.

A man who reportedly shot at a woman in Laurel on Thursday night has been arrested in what police are calling a "domestic dispute."

Laurel Police Capt. Travis Pitts told MTN News that the man fired a BB gun at the driver's side window of a woman who parked a vehicle in the driveway of a residence at the corner of Third Avenue and Third Street in Laurel around 5:20 p.m.

The woman was not injured. Police did not identify either her or the man.

Pitts said police initially thought the man was still in the residence, but he had apparently snuck out and was caught and arrested nearby.

Laurel police said the man could potentially face assault and weapons charges. He was booked into Yellowstone County jail.
