Bonner County man shot

John Bilsky, 58

A Bonner County man was airlifted to a Spokane hospital after being shot during a neighbor dispute Wednesday, officials said today.

Employees at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center said they could not release information on the condition of the victim, Richard Larson, 59.

Authorities say John Bilsky, 58, shot Larson in the 200 block of Makers Way. The Bonner County Sheriff’s Office responded about 4 p.m. Larson was taken to Bonner General Hospital, then flown to Spokane.

Bilsky was arrested on an aggravated battery charge.

Bilsky is a resident of Pennsylvania, according to a news release, but the altercation was described as “an ongoing neighborhood dispute.”
