A man who fired shots at authorities near Bozeman yesterday has been arrested.

Federal, state and local authorities coordinated what Park County Sheriff Scott Hamilton called a “systematic sweep” of the area today. During the sweep, a woman who lives in the Bozeman Pass area called 911 to report seeing a man matching the description of 36-year-old Shaunesy Cole attempting to break into her home.
