Darnell was taken to the hospital in Polson, where he died of his injuries. His body was taken to the state crime lab in Missoula for an autopsy.
Bell said the suspected shooter, 29-year-old Daniel Chance Blixt, was arrested on suspicion of deliberate homicide and was being held in the county jail. It was unclear if Blixt has an attorney.
Pablo is located on the Flathead Indian Reservation between Missoula and Kalispell.
