HELENA — A 24-year-old woman has been charged with Tampering with or Fabricating Evidence, a felony, in connection to an incident where a man with a gunshot wound was dropped off at the hospital on Friday, August 16.

Jennifer Megan Munger is being held on $10,000 bond in the Lewis and Clark County Detention Center.

According to court documents, Munger allegedly dropped the man with the gunshot wound off at St. Peter’s Health and then left almost immediately after medical personnel took the injured man out of the vehicle.

Law enforcement found the vehicle the following day and investigators determined it belonged to the injured man who was shot in the leg while driving.

Documents also state Munger admitted she left the hospital because she worried she would be arrested for other ongoing criminal charges, and she and another person tried to hide the vehicle.
