We have an update on a shooting that happened Wednesday afternoon in Missoula.

A call went out around 2:20 p.m. Wednesday for the shooting near Gold's Gym and Rosauers off Reserve Street in Missoula. The incident left a 33-year-old Missoula police officer in the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and other officers on the search for persons of interest.  

Friday 22-year-old Jazmine Beehler and 25-year-old Joshua Lee Robinson faced a Missoula judge on a combined total of four felony charges for their involvement in the incident.

According to court documents the shootout happened after an undercover agent set up a drug deal with Beehler after she already allegedly sold the meth to him.

“The defendant has been involved in the distribution of methamphetamine and, by her own admission, in the planning of a robbery,” says Deputy County Attorney Jason Marks.  

According to court records Robinson approached the undercover officer at the spot he had planned to meet Beehler and that's when things got violent.

Robinson allegedly pulled a pistol on the detective and demanded he hand over money.  That's when Robinson allegedly shot the officer.  

According to the court documents, he fired three rounds, the last one jammed.

“They planned a robbery that ended very violently,” said Marks.  “(They) have been engaged in the distribution of methamphetamine, so both of those are very concerning to us.”
Robinson faces a felony charge of attempted deliberate homicide and felony robbery.  His bail is set at $250,000 and he is not allowed any contact with Beehler.  

“He has a felony record out-of-state for drug offenses and, given the facts of this case, I think a substantial bail is warranted,” Marks said to Judge John Odlin.  

According to court documents Beehler admitted she and others discussed robbing the undercover officer. She faces a felony charge of criminal distribution of dangerous drugs and a felony charge of conspiracy to commit robbery.  

As for the officer who was shot, according to authorities he is expected to be released from the hospital Friday with non-life-threatening injuries.

Beehler and Robinson will face a judge again in December.
