Update on Crow Reservation Curfew

Posted in

An emergency curfew from 9 p.m. until 5 a.m. is in effect for the Crow Reservation, its residents and any vehicles driving through until further notice. The curfew was implemented by the Crow Tribe Executive Branch starting at 9 p.m. Friday, according to information from several sources in Montana. Chairman Alvin “A.J.” Not Afraid Jr. issued the curfew at the request of law enforcement. According to Not Afraid, the curfew was due to a major incident that law enforcement has been actively investigating in Lodge Grass. According to the Associated Press, three people were killed.

27-year-old Leslie Frank Nomee Jr. and 30-year-old Nehemiah Brokenrope died at Crow-Northern Cheyenne Hospital after the Friday shootings. Nomee's wife, 25-year-old Denise Stewart Nomee, was pronounced dead Saturday at St. Vincent Healthcare in Billings. Terry Bullis, the Big Horn County Coroner, says all three died of gunshot wounds. Vehicles traveling on roadways within the exterior boundaries of the Crow Reservation after 9 p.m. Aug. 4 are subject to being stopped, and all occupants would be ordered to present valid identification upon law enforcement request. Authorities say the shootings took place at a home in the town of Lodge Grass and were drug-related.
