This afternoon, Nov. 19, 2018 at approximately 3:30 p.m., one of our troopers attempted to initiate a traffic stop near the intersection of Meridian Road and West Waltman Lane. The suspect fled and our trooper pursued him to the end of W. Waltman Ln, a dead-end street. At the end of that road, a physical altercation occurred between the trooper and the suspect which ended when the trooper discharged his duty weapon. Although the trooper attempted to perform lifesaving measures, the suspect was pronounced dead at the scene.
This matter is now under investigation by a critical incident task force, led by the Boise Police Department.
