Boise, Idaho – A man on a street adjacent to the campus of Boise State University was fatally shot Monday evening.
Boise Police Department officers responded to a call about shots fired near the west side of campus at about 11:30 p.m., the school said in a statement. Officers found the victim lying in the street. He was taken to a local hospital but later died from his injuries, reports ABC News.
Officers searched the area and took two suspects into custody, reports KTVB. ABC News reports a white passenger van was seen leaving the scene of the shooting. Shortly after that, police apprehended one of the suspects who ran from the vehicle after officers tried to pull it over. The other suspect was apprehended after being chased on foot by officers. It’s unclear if anyone else is involved.
Neither the victim nor the two suspects have been identified, but none are Boise State students or employees.
In response to the report of gunshots, the school issued a series of BroncoAlert text-based emergency notifications to the campus community. The alerts cautioned anyone near campus to shelter in place while police investigated.
“The university community is saddened by this loss of life and extends heartfelt condolences to the victim’s family and loved ones,” Boise State said in an announcement.
