Kuna police were involved in a five-hour standoff Tuesday afternoon that ended when a man was transported to the hospital with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
The injury does not appear to be life-threatening, according to the Ada County Sheriff’s Office.
The man, whose identity was not released, locked himself in his car with a gun in the 200 block of E. Black Hawk Drive and told authorities that he was going to shoot himself or walk out of the car while holding the gun, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
The situation began at about 2:30 p.m. after authorities received a call about a violated protection order. The man reportedly walked up to the door of a woman who has the order against him, and she called 911.
The man then went to his car.
Ada County dispatch sent a Code Red at about 3 p.m., telling those in the neighborhood to “shelter in place” in a tweet.
Kuna police and sheriff’s deputies created a perimeter and attempted to communicate with the man via cellphone, authorities said. The standoff ended at about 7:30 p.m.
No charges have been filed, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
