Idaho County Deputy officer involved shooting
On November 16, 2010, in Riggins, the Idaho County Sheriffs Office attempted to serve a felony warrant out of El Paso County, Colorado, on Curtis Scrivner. At that time, Scrivner brandished a weapon and fled. The Idaho County Sheriffs Response Team, assisted by the Idaho State Police, was unable to locate Scrivner. On November 17, 2010, the Idaho County Sheriffs Office received information that Scrivner was observed at a construction site about five miles east of Riggins on Big Salmon Road. Four Idaho County Deputies responded to the area. At about 7:30 a.m., upon approaching the construction site, the Deputies were fired upon by Scrivner. It became necessary for the Deputies to use deadly force in order to stop Scrivners deadly assault. As a result, Deputy Fred Carey was wounded and Scrivner received fatal injuries. Deputy Carey was transported by ambulance to the McCall Hospital then airlifted to St. Als in Boise. Deputy Carey is currently in stable condition. The Idaho State Police is conducting the investigation into the incident. Captain Lonnie Richardson, Region Two-Lewiston, will be the point of contact for the media at 208-799-5150.
