UPDATE - Bond was set at $100,000 on Monday for a 19 year-old Washington State man, Ian Fiorino, for charges of attempted deliberate homicide

Deputy County Attorney Mark Handelman asked for the high bail from substitute Justice of the Peace David Steele.

"The defendant was arrested on a $50,000 warrant for attempted deliberate homicide for a meth-related shooting," Handelman began. "A judge had previously issued that $50,000 warrant, however, we are requesting that bail be set at $100,000 because the defendant poses a grave danger to the community and did not turn himself in when the warrant was issued, even though he knew police were looking for him."


Missoula Police finally have a suspect in custody from a shooting that was reported back on Wednesday April 12, near some apartments on Milwaukee Way. At the time, there were reports that three vehicles were at the scene as well as a man who walked up and fired a gun at one of the vehicles before escaping. It now appears the vehicles were there for a drug deal and the shooter was at the scene to settle a disagreement over stolen drugs. According to Missoula Police Public Information Officer Travis Welsh, the suspected shooter is just 19.

"Well, about 5:30 in the afternoon Sunday, May 7, Ian Fiorino and a female adult, who was with him at the time were taken into custody after a tip was called in to the local FBI office about in regard to their possible location in a vehicle located in the 200 block of Blaine street," Welsh said.

The woman found with Fiorino in the vehicle is 23-years-old and she is also being held in Missoula County Jail.

"Mr. Fiorino and the female, who is identified as 23-year old Jennifer Hall, were both taken into custody," Welsh said. "Fiorino had an outstanding warrant for the shooting that took place near Milwaukee trail a few weeks ago... Mrs. Hall was arrested on drug charges."

Detectives have spent a lot of time trying to piece together what happened in this case, following up with all three of the vehicles that were at the scene and interviewing the individuals involved. Detectives are pointing to Fiornio as a likely shooter for a number of reasons, including cell phone calls made right before the incident.
