Two Suspects Arrested After Shooting Near The College of Idaho
Two males have been arrested after discharging a firearm near the College of Idaho.
Over the weekend, the Caldwell Police Department responded to multiple shots fired near the College of Idaho campus on East Oak Street. The Caldwell Police Department reacted swiftly and discovered students running from a home close to the college early Sunday morning.
After conducting a protective sweep of the home for victims, officers discovered that no one was shot or injured. Their preliminary evidence suggested that there may have been a verbal altercation between 2-3 males after being denied entry into a party.
The two males who parked nearby fired several shots toward the home, luckily not hitting anyone, but they hit several parked cars. Over the past three days, Detectives from the Caldwell Police Department committed their efforts to identify the suspect(s) responsible for the senseless shooting near the College of Idaho campus.
According to the Caldwell Police Department Press Release, "After days of relentless investigative follow-up, Caldwell Police Detectives developed sufficient evidence and probable cause to support that 19-year-old Milo Yerby of Meridian and 19-year-old Traystin Riach, of Meridian, were responsible for the shooting."
On Wednesday night (02/22), with the assistance of the Meridian and Garden City Police Department's IMPACT TEAM, the Caldwell Police located Milo Yerby and Traystin Riach. The two were arrested at their homes without incident and charged with Unlawful Discharge of a Firearm at a dwelling, Riot, and Intimidating a Witness.
Rex Ingram, the Chief of Police for the Caldwell Police Department, said, "Today is another example of how professional, dedicated, and relentless our detectives are in the pursuit of justice for our community. When the shooting occurred on Sunday morning, I knew that the individuals involved wouldn't be able to escape the team of tenacious and astute investigators we have in our Department. This violence must stop. Enough is enough!"
