James Robert Cassidy, 28. of Lolo, was arrested early on the morning of Saturday, June 22 after allegedly firing three rounds from a handgun towards a group of neighbors who confronted him.

Deputy Missoula County Attorney Karla Painter said on Monday, that the shooting resulted from a verbal confrontation with Cassidy.

“When officers arrived they found the people who said they had been shot at,” Painter said. “The neighbors had a verbal confrontation with Cassidy. Mr. Cassidy went into his house and came out with a handgun and fired three rounds in their direction. They ran away on foot and no one was struck by the bullets.”

Because there were four individuals who were endangered by the gunshots, Painter said Cassidy would be charged with four felony counts of assault with a weapon.

“The maximum penalty for assault with a weapon is 20 years in prison and and $50,000 fine.”

She said alcohol played a part in the incident.

Painter said Cassidy was booked into the Missoula County Jail on $200,000 bond.He appeared in Missoula Justice Court on Monday afternoon.
