BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Prosecutors say they will seek to increase bail to $100,000 on a suspect being held in the weekend shooting of a hitchhiker outside of Glasgow.

Fifty-two-year-old Lloyd Christopher Danielson III of Tumwater, Wash. is expected to appear Tuesday in Valley County Justice Court on charges of felony assault with a weapon.

He allegedly shot 39-year-old Ray Dolin of Julian, W. Va. in the arm as the victim was hitchhiking along U.S. Highway 2 near Glasgow on Saturday.

Danielson was initially held on $50,000 bail after his arrest in Roosevelt County.

Valley County Attorney Nicholas Murnion says a higher bail is warranted because of the violent nature of the offense and because Danielson is from out of state.
