Two injured in Thursday morning shooting, investigation ongoing

Boise Police officers responded to reports of a shooting in the parking lot of an apartment complex near Cassia and Phillippi which occurred at approximately 5:40 a.m. on Thursday.  Officers quickly responded to the scene and immediately located a male adult victim who had been shot once.  That victim was transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.  Officers set up a perimeter around the crime scene and ensured there was no longer a threat to public safety.  Evidence gathered indicated the suspected shooter had fled the area in a vehicle.  Not long after officers received word that another adult male related to the incident had arrived at an area hospital with a non-life threatening gunshot wound.  Evidence gathered on scene indicate that the suspect and the two men who had been shot know each other.  Officers have identified the suspected shooter, an adult male, and are attempting to locate him at this time.  The investigation remains ongoing.
