UPDATE: Intruder in Shooting ID'd as Big Sky H.S. Foreign Exchange Student

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA - Missoula County Public schools confirms the 17-year-old man who died in a weekend shooting was Big Sky High School student Diren Dede of Hamburg, Germany.
Dede was enrolled as a foreign exchange student in the junior class at Big Sky High School.

The staff and administration of Big Sky High School will provide grief support services to students on Monday, as well as ongoing support throughout this process.
Marcus Kaarma, the man who shot Dede, is charged with deliberate homicide following the deadly shooting at his Missoula home. Court documents allege he was trying to bait burglars. Kaarma's attorneys say the family was robbed twice in the last three weeks, so they set up motion sensors and cameras around their home.
About 12 a.m. Sunday, Kaarma and his wife were laying on the couch when an alarm indicated an intruder in their garage. Court documents show the garage door was left open. When Kaarma headed there, he grabbed a shot gun. Though it was dark, he fired four shots. When the lights came on, he saw 17-year-old Dede on the ground with injuries to his head and arm. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Missoula police detectives said a hairdresser reported hearing Kaarma say the couple wanted to catch and shoot "some kid", allegedly baiting a burglar by leaving the garage door open and an open purse in the garage.

Bail was set at $30,000. Missoula County Justice Court officials say it was posted.

Missoula police arrest a homeowner for shooting a 17-year-old man who broke into his garage.

On Sunday around 12:20 a.m., police responded to the report of a shooting in the 2600 block of Deer Canyon Court.

When they arrived, officers encountered a male and female resident at the front of the house.

A 17-year-old male lay wounded in their garage.

Initial reports indicate that the male resident encountered the intruder in his garage after an alarm went off, and then shot him with a shotgun.

The male resident has been arrested, and the 17-year-old intruder has died of his injuries.

The case is currently under investigation. If you have information regarding this incident please contact Detective Guy Baker at (406) 396-3217.
