Overnight Shooting Incident

    Boise Police responded to a report of a shooting that took place at a local motel on the 2600 block of West Fairview Avenue late last night, August 4th, at approximately 11:30 p.m. Witnesses tell police an adult male in the hotel room was shot by what appeared to be an adult suspect. The victim was transported to a local hospital with what appeared to be a non life threatening injury at the time. Boise Police Detectives are working to identify who may have been responsible for the incident. Detectives are actively working several good leads in this case and at this early point in the investigation, it does not appear as though there is a direct threat to the general community. Because of the nature of the active ongoing investigation no further information is available at this time.
