GREAT FALLS, Mont. (NMB) – A Colorado man has been arraigned in U.S. District Court on four felony charges based on allegations that he attempted to murder a man on the Rocky Boy’s Reservation in late September.

Court documents allege that on September 25th, Zamora discharged a 9mm handgun in an attempt to murder a man on the Rocky Boy’s Reservation. The victim was life-flighted to Benefis Hospital.

It adds that an FBI Special Agent was dispatched to a pursuit following the shooting, which ended at Bowery Peak after 3 AM.

According to the affidavit, Officers recovered three 9 mm cartridge casings at the Rocky Boy residence where the shooting allegedly occurred.

The complaint alleges that a search of the vehicle the suspect is believed to have used resulted in the recovery of “crystal meth, live .223 caliber ammunition, a spent .40 caliber casing, and drug paraphernalia.”

Zamora faces a maximum 20 years in prison, a $250,000 fine and three years of supervised release on the assault charge and a mandatory 10 years to life consecutive to any other sentence, a $250,000 fine and five years of supervised release on the firearms crime.
