Arizona man arrested for Nampa drive-by shooting

June 25, 2013 

— An Arizona man has been arrested in connection with a drive-by shooting in Nampa Monday night.

Police say Logan Frans, 22, fired one shot at another vehicle, striking the car.

“It took one round through the grill and into the radiator,” said Sgt. Tim Randall of the Nampa Police Department.

Frans, of Yuma, Ariz., and the victim knew each other and had argued earlier in the night, Randall said.

"Apparently the two of them had a verbal altercation earlier," Randall said. "The suspect then went back to a residence, retrieved the gun and went back out looking for the victim."

As both vehicles were moving, Frans leaned out the window of one car and fired one shot at the victim, a 19-year-old Nampa man, Randall said.

Frans was not driving. The female driver of the vehicle that Frans was in has not been charged or arrested.

Frans was taken into custody Tuesday morning in a standoff with police and a SWAT team at a Nampa home. The standoff began before 6 a.m. in the 1200 block of 10th Street and lasted until about 7:20 a.m., police said.

Two other people taken into custody in the standoff, a Nampa woman and a girl, have not been charged.

Frans has been charged with discharging a firearm inside a vehicle. He was booked into the Canyon County Jail shortly after noon Tuesday.

Additional charges and arrests may be pending, Randall said.
