BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - The FBI says two people are in custody following reports of a shooting at a Lodge Grass post office that prompted a lockdown on public buildings. FBI spokeswoman Debbie Dujanovic Bertram said Wednesday there is no threat to public safety. She declined to release additional details.

Lodge Grass Mayor Henry Speelman says it is unclear if anyonewas injured. He says officers were in pursuit of a blue truck with Wyoming plates. That matches the description of a blue Ford F-150 linked to a shooting in Washakie County, Wyoming.

Washakie County Sheriff's Office Captain Rich Fernandez says 34-year-old Carlos Sanchez may have fled to the Lodge Grass area after allegedly shooting a man Tuesday. The victim survived.

Sanchez was considered armed and dangerous and was traveling with a juvenile female.
