BILLINGS, Montana (AP) —The FBI is seeking a 36-year-old Montana man following a weekend shooting on the Crow Indian Reservation that authorities said left two people including a Bureau of Indian Affairs officer with injuries.

Authorities previously said the man involved in the altercation with the officer was shot. Barker said Notafraid’s condition was unknown and he remained at large Wednesday morning.

Notafraid, a member of the Crow Tribe, is described as 5 feet, 6 inches ( 1.7 meters ) tall, 160 pounds (73 kilograms) with brown eyes and black hair. He has tattoos on his chest, finger, left hand, and right arm.
