Transient charged in Kalispell fitness center shooting

KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) — A transient man has been arrested and charged for a shooting outside a Kalispell fitness center in which the center’s manager was killed and another man was injured.

The charges were filed Tuesday and District Judge Dan Wilson issued an arrest warrant on Wednesday for Jonathan Douglas Shaw, 35, for deliberate homicide and attempted deliberate homicide for the Sept. 16 shooting.

Shaw was booked into jail Wednesday after being released from the hospital, according to Flathead County jail records. His bail is set at $1 million.

Shaw is charged with killing Fuel Fitness manager Matthew Hurley and injuring another man who heard the initial shots, grabbed his own weapon and exchanged gunfire with Shaw.

Hurley and the assistant manager, Matthew Underhill, had told Shaw he could no longer live in his vehicle in the fitness center’s parking lot and that they were refunding the remainder of his membership, court records said. Underhill told investigators that when Shaw was told he would only receive a partial refund, Shaw said: “Well, you are going to die,” and started shooting at Hurley, prosecutors said.

Shaw’s arraignment is set for Oct. 28. He has not been assigned a public defender, according to the clerk of court’s office.
