Boise Police Investigating Fatal Shooting

March 16, 2021

Around 11:30 pm officers responded to the 1400 block of Chrisway Dr. for reports of shots fired. Officers located an adult male subject on the ground in the street with gunshot wounds. The victim was transported to the hospital where he died from his injuries.

Evidence indicates a white passenger vehicle was seen fleeing the area following the shooting. Shortly after, patrol officers spotted a vehicle matching the same description in the area of 27th and Main. As officers were attempting to make a traffic stop, a male subject was seen exiting the vehicle and running away. Upon further investigation, officers found evidence to indicate the abandoned vehicle was involved in the shooting incident. A perimeter was quickly set up to contain any potential suspects while an area search was conducted. Nearby residents were asked to shelter in place. Shortly after, patrol officers spotted the subject who fled the traffic stop running in the area of 30th and Main. Officers were able to stop the suspect and he was taken into custody. A second suspect was taken into custody near the 3000 block of W. Main St. following a short foot pursuit.

The investigation is ongoing but there is no continued threat to the community at this time. The Ada County Coroner’s Office will release the identity of the deceased pending notification of family members.

Anyone with information is asked to call dispatch at 208-377-6790 or Crime Stoppers: at 208-343-COPS (2677),, or leave a tip using the “P3 Tips” app for your mobile device.
