“We responded to a situation that took place after a birthday party for a female victim of domestic violence,” Deputy Chief Troy Kimble said. “We believe her ex-boyfriend was waiting for her to exit, and that’s when the shooting occurred.”

The suspect was identified as 39-year-old Roderich Montgomery. Montgomery allegedly fired a gun at the party leaving the restaurant, shooting a male victim one time in the left arm.

He then fled the scene in a blue sedan with Texas license plates. The victim was treated and later released from Merit Health River Region.

As of Friday morning, Montgomery was still at large and a warrant had been issued for aggravated assault with a firearm.
