Powell Police Investigator Dave Brown searches for evidence at the scene of a shooting Saturday night.

A verbal argument between two Powell men ended in a shot fired on South Clark Street and Jefferson Street Saturday night.

According to a release issued Monday by police, Frank Miller, 57, fired a round from a handgun into the street. The round richoceted off the pavement and struck the man he had been arguing with. The man was treated at Powell Valley Hospital and later released, the release said.

Sgt. Alan Kent of the Powell Police Department said there was apparently bad blood between the two men and it boiled over.

Miller was arrested for aggravated assault and transported to the Park County jail to be held for arraignment, said the release.

Police are still searching for the weapon - believed to be a Colt model 1911 semi-automatic .45 caliber handgun. If found, citizens are cautioned not to disturb it, in part because the gun may still be loaded.

Anyone who finds the weapon, witnessed the fight, or has information on the case is asked to contact Powell Police Investigator Dave Brown at 754-2212.
