University of Montana Lockdown Lifted
A man carrying a gun was seen running along Arthur Avenue near the university
MISSOULA – The University of Montana has lifted a lockdown prompted by the armed robbery of two Missoula businesses Thursday morning, but the suspect remains at large.

Detective Sgt. Travis Welsh says a man with a handgun robbed the Motel 6 and the Taco Bell restaurant on East Broadway shortly after 9 a.m. The campus was put on lockdown at about 10:20 a.m., shortly after a man carrying a gun and a plastic bag was seen running along Arthur Avenue near the university.

About 2.5 hours later, the university lifted its lockdown saying there was no indication the suspect was still in the area.

UM spokeswoman Peggy Kuhr says city and UM campus police believe the robbery suspect matches the description of Kevin Briggs, a suspect in a Bozeman rape who escaped from the police station on Feb. 1.
