A standoff that followed a shooting and chase in Busby overnight ended with the arrest of six suspects, the Yellowstone County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday.

The incident began with a shooting in Busby sometime before 10 p.m. on Wednesday.

Law enforcement officers from the Big Horn County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene, which led to a chase.

The chase took authorities to a home west of Busby near Hardin, according to the Yellowstone County Sheriff’s Office.

The FBI said Thursday that two people barricaded themselves in the home.

The Yellowstone County Sheriff’s Office tactical team received a call for assistance at around 10 p.m.

The tactical team deployed gas and OC — or pepper spray — and forced the suspects out of the house early Thursday morning.

Authorities arrested four males and two females, according to the Yellowstone County Sheriff’s Office.

BIA officers were also involved and the FBI is investigating.

The Yellowstone County Sheriff’s Office said no law enforcement officers fired a weapon.

Authorities have not yet said whether anyone was injured in the shooting. The Big Horn County Sheriff’s Office has not yet returned our calls for information.
