ISP corporal fired fatal shots at fugitive

An Idaho State Police report confirms that Cpl. Dan Howard fired the shots that killed one person and injured another after two Montana fugitives rammed his patrol car on Feb. 7.

Mark Marion Maykopet, 24, of Butte, was treated at Kootenai Medical Center then jailed on a $1.5 million bond.

His passenger, Christie O’Leary Little, 40, also known as Christie Ann Little, was killed.

Following the incident, detectives found two guns on the floor of the Jeep Cherokee driven by Maykopet, the report said. A fully automatic 9 mm was found behind the rear seat with an empty 32-round magazine.

A .25 caliber pistol was found under the passenger seat toward the rear with an eight-round magazine, but the chamber was not loaded.
