Trooper Shot, Killed In Three Forks

A massive manhunt ended late Wednesday night after police found the suspect dead just hours after he shot and killed a Montana Highway Patrolman outside Three Forks.

More than 100 police officers searched deep into the night for Errol Brent Bouldin, 56, who shot and killed 23-year-old Trooper David DeLaittre. Gallatin County Sheriff James Cashell said Bouldin shot DeLaittre on a roadway just off Montana Highway 2 at about 4:30 p.m. Police from across southern and central Montana aided the search for Bouldin, who was on the loose for nearly four hours.

Bouldin was found dead around 8:30 p.m. in his truck in the Crow Creek area near Radersburg in Broadwater County, just southwest of Townsend. Cashell said the official cause of death wouldn’t be released until after an autopsy.
