Boise police ID juveniles believed to have been in school parking lot when shots fired

Statesman staffOctober 9, 2013 

As the investigation continues into shots fired at Les Bois Junior High School last week, Boise police identified 10 juveniles believed to have been in vehicles captured on security footage around the time of the incident.

Security footage showed an SUV and a light-colored car driving through the parking lot from 11:43 p.m. Oct. 2 to 12:05 a.m. Oct. 3. The occupants of the vehicles seemed to know each other, police said.

Investigators said there's evidence that someone fired four shots at a door at Les Bois Junior High from the edge of the parking lot just after midnight Oct. 3. The weapon used was believed to be a .22-caliber handgun.

The juveniles in question did not face charges Wednesday in connection with the shots fired, police said. The pending charges were for disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor.

Police were still investigating the shots at Les Bois. They also were still investigating a report of a teenage male shooting toward Trail Wind Elementary, which is adjacent to Les Bois, at 1:25 p.m. Oct. 3.
