Shawn Fisher told police that he was being threatened by a secret society through his video game system, according to court documents obtained by the Statesman Friday.
Fisher remains a person of interest in the shooting death of Matthew Mohler-Kerns earlier that night. Mohler-Kerns, 28, died from a shot to the head as he sat in his car on Franklin Road.
Police say Fisher shot into another car during a different road-rage incident minutes before in the Vista Avenue neighborhood. They have the .38-caliber revolver used in that shooting.
Police also found five rounds of .38-caliber ammunition and an empty ammo box for .38 bullets in Fisher's Boise Bench apartment, according to the search warrant.
The documents don't indicate any connection or motive between Fisher's actions that evening and Mohler-Kerns' death.
The court documents, however, support police reports that Fisher was intoxicated at the time of his arrest.
Police say they found Spice and bath salts (synthetic marijuana and amphetamine stimulants) in his home the next day. Fisher told police he was taking Lithium - a drug used to treat manic depression and bipolar disorder - with "new age and research drugs," according to search warrant documents.
Fisher also told police he had been "receiving threats from his X-Box from a secret society."
Fisher has not been charged in connection with the death of Mohler-Kerns. He is in the Ada County Jail on a $500,000 bond, awaiting a preliminary hearing Tuesday. He is charged with aggravated battery, aggravated assault, use of a weapon in the commission of crime and a misdemeanor count of kicking a police dog.
Police say Fisher rammed into a car and fired a bullet into its driver's side door following a parking dispute at a Vista-area apartment complex. Hours later, Fisher got into a confrontation with police. It ended with a police dog pulling him from behind a home in South Boise.
In between, Mohler-Kerns was found dead - not far from where the driver of the car from the Vista apartment worked and from where the driver called police.
Police haven't said if they suspect that Fisher followed the driver of the car from Vista to the Franklin Road area, where Mohler-Kerns was shot.
