Author Writing ‘Kindness Of America’ Shot Along Highway In Random Drive-By Shooting

GLASGOW, Montana (TRP) – An author who is currently hitchhiking across the United States in an effort to amass inspiration for his upcoming memoir “The Kindness of America,” was wounded when he was shot in a random drive-by shooting in northeastern Montana.

According to authorities in Valley County, 33-year-old Raymond Dolin was waiting for a ride along U.S. Highway 2 near Glasgow Saturday when a complete stranger in a maroon pick-up truck drove up to him, shot him and then fled the scene.

Dolin, of West Virginia, managed to get the attention of a passer-by who took him to a nearby hospital. The author’s injuries were described as non-life threatening.

After a 4-hour manhunt, police caught up with the pickup truck 100 miles east of Glasgow and arrested the driver identified as 52-year-old Charles Lloyd Danielson III, of Washington state..

Danielson remains in police custody Monday on suspicion of felony assault with a deadly weapon and driving under the influence.

“It appears to be an absolutely random event,” Sheriff Glenn Myer told local news affiliate KTVQ. “He just drove up there and shot him. We’re unclear as to why.”

It wasn’t immediately clear if Dolin will be changing the title of his memoir. In the event that he does, we have a suggested title compliments of Peter Griffin.
