A man believed to be the shooting suspect was later found and fatally shot by police early Sunday. The Ada County sheriff says 27-year-old Deputy Tobin Bolter was shot as he approached the driver’s window Saturday night and the suspect took off. A police officer shot the suspect after Boise police say he fired at police trying to get him to surrender. Authorities say he is a 65-year-old man who had a misdemeanor arrest warrant.
