Boise Police investigate gang related shooting

22:36 |

The Boise Police Department is investigating a shooting that occurred early Sunday morning in downtown Boise. Investigators believe the shooting is gang related. It happened on the southeast corner of Capitol Boulevard and Main Street at 1:15 a.m. No one was seriously injured, but now Boise Police are looking for who fired. Doug Winter works in downtown Boise, just feet away from where the reported gang shooting took place. “I was here for most of the night, and yeah, I ended up going out as well,” said Winter. “None of us really knew what was going on, so to find out that it was a shooting is pretty interesting for sure.” Winter witnessed police investigating the aftermath of the shooting. “They definitely had quite a bit of the block roped off and people were definitely kind of concerned and curious,” said Winter. Boise Police Officers reportedly arrived to the scene fast, but the two suspects and one victim had already run away. Investigators said the 37-year-old victim is from Twin Falls and checked into a Boise hospital after the incident. The victim suffered a gunshot wound to the leg, but was treated and released. “It’s terrible, it’s shocking,” said Candice Blanker. Blanker was one of several people KTVB spoke with Sunday afternoon who were shocked to hear a gang shooting could happen in downtown Boise at a time when bar goers were out and about. “It's concerning a little bit, but yeah, terrible,” said Blanker. Still, Blanker believes Boise is a safe place. “I have no concerns," she said. "We were around all day walking around and we love being here. I mean, it’s unfortunate that that stuff happens and it kind of taints people's view maybe of Boise. That’s too bad, but it’s a great place to be and we do feel safe." At this time, officers from the Boise Police Violent Crimes Unit and the Boise Police Gang Unit are investigating. One suspect is described as 5’5 to 5’8 tall, with a slender build and a shaved head. They were also said to be wearing a red plaid jacket.
