Mont. Militia Leader who Fired on Deputies Remains at Large

June 16, 2011  | 

Fugitive militia leader David Burgert remained at large Thursday, as law enforcement personnel scaled back their search for the former Marine who had planned a gunfight with Missoula County Sheriff's deputies.

Burgett reportedly exchanged fire with sheriff's deputies along a logging trail on Sunday, NBC reports.

Burgett, a 47-year-old parolee, is believed to be hiding in the heavily forcested mountains of western Montana near the Idaho border.

Burgett led an anti-government militia group called Project 7 that was broken up by federal authories in the last decade. He served eight years in federal prison on weapons charges.
