Summary"Officials say that the suspect in Monday's shooting in Anaconda is in stable condition at a Missoula hospital. John Duane Crisler, the 45-year-old suspect in the officer-involved shooting, is also allegedly the man who led law enforcement on a high-speed chase last week. Crisler eluded Butte-Silver Bow and Anaconda-Deer Lodge law enforcement officers in a high-speed pursuit on Friday. Officers were attempting to arrest him on a warrant for failure to appear for sentencing on a fourth offense DUI. Crisler abandoned the vehicle he was driving and escaped on foot. Both agencies were searching for him when a tip was received that Crisler was located at 1701 Lost Creek Road in Anaconda. When officers attempted to arrest him on the warrant on Monday, four of the officers involved fired at Crisler as he was attempting to run them over with a car. None of the officers were injured in the incident. The Division of Criminal Investigation at the Montana Department of Justice is continuing its investigation of the incident. Once the investigation is completed, it will be turned over to the Anaconda-Deer Lodge County Attorney for review."
