HELENA, Mont. -

Gov. Steve Bullock has expressed his "profound sympathy" to the German government and friends and family of the German exchange student killed in Missoula last month.
    
Seventeen-year-old Diren Dede was shot and killed by a neighbor on April 27. Markus Kaarma is charged with deliberate homicide in the shooting, which occurred in Kaarma's garage.
    
The Missoulian reported Saturday (http://bit.ly/1iBo3LE) that Bullock told German consul Peter Rothen he's confident the investigation and potential criminal proceedings will be impartial.
