John Delling returned to Boise Saturday afternoon in a two-car police caravan nearly overlooked by the media gathered at the Ada County Jail to capture the moment.
Delling was extradited to Ada County on a warrant for possession of a stolen vehicle, said Ada County Sheriff's Lt. Scott Johnson. Information about other charges would come Monday at the earliest, he said.
Delling made the journey from Sparks, Nev., as a passenger in a silver sedan with heavily tinted windows, arriving in Boise just before 4 p.m. He was booked into the Ada County Jail, where he was to be housed in a maximum security area where his movements will be restricted, Ada County sheriff's Sgt. Pat Calley said.
The transfer was "seamless," Calley said.
A 23-year-old University of Arizona student who police say could be Delling's first shooting victim — and the only one to survive — is in rehabilitation after being shot three times.
Timberline High School graduate Jacob Thompson survived being shot in the face and chest during an early-morning incident outside his Tucson, Ariz., home on March 20.
Thompson said a roommate awoke him at about 1:30 a.m. saying a person was outside complaining Thompson's truck was "in the way and that it needed to be moved."
"We kind of hung out in the living room and listened outside for awhile," Thompson said. "When the commotion died down, we went outside with some flashlights and looked around. No one was out there."
Still, Thompson said he decided to move his truck into the garage so it wouldn't be vandalized. He drove the vehicle around a neighborhood block and noticed a person riding a bicycle, Thompson said.
"I drove up to that person and asked them if they were the person that was front of my house," Thompson said in an interview with KTVB Channel 7.
Officials say the shooter then fired five shots at Thompson.
Delling is a suspect in this shooting and in the shooting of Meridian resident Bradley Morse, who was found dead near the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation office where he worked. Delling is charged with murder in the March 31 death of University of Idaho student David Boss.
