Suspect injured in officer-involved shooting near Fairview Ave.

At 11:27 p.m. Boise Police responded to a call about some problem subjects who were acting suspiciously inside a business on Fairview Ave and Maple Grove. When officers arrived, a male suspect ran from police and refused commands to stop. During a foot pursuit through business lots westbound on Fairview, the suspect displayed a firearm and continued to refuse police orders. Officers encountered the suspect south of Fairview on the 9200 block and after a confrontation were forced to discharge their duty weapons. The suspect was injured and taken by ambulance to a local hospital. 

The Ada County Sheriff's Office is leading the Critical Incident Task Force investigation. Fairview Avenue is closed between Mitchell St. and Maple Grove Rd. at this time.
