Fatal shooting sparks international interest


MISSOULA, Mont. - NBC Montana is learning more about Diren Dede's family.

Sources in Germany tell NBC Montana, Dede's father is expected to arrive in Missoula Tuesday night. The father wants to take his son's body home to their native country of Turkey, so he can be buried.

The fatal shooting has captured headlines around the world. A crew from Germany along with the US network crews are in Missoula. NBC Montana found them in the neighborhood where the shooting happened.

Missoula investigators say they are swamped with calls for information.

"We certainly have had cases that garner national exposure. As far as international exposure, I don't know if I have ever spoken to as many foreign correspondents as I have about this case," said Sergeant Travis Welsh, PIO with the Missoula Police Department.
