Man attacks 84-year-old, shoots gun inside home, sheriff says
BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - Eagle Police and the Ada County Sheriff's Office say they have arrested a man who threatened his 84-year-old relative with a gun during a fight.

Police say 56-year-old Gregory Vietz and his older relative got into a physical fight at a home in the 2400 block of East Lenox Court in Eagle Tuesday evening.

Police say Vietz had a gun and shot 5 to 8 rounds into the walls. He also attacked the 84 year-old, causing minor injuries. At one point, Vietz pointed the gun at his relative and threatened to harm him.

When police arrived at the house, they say the suspect refused to come out for about two hours.

Police say that after he agreed to surrender, the man became uncooperative with officers, so a Garden City Police K9 was used to help apprehend him.

Officials say the man has been taken to the hospital to be treated for a dog bite and was booked at the Ada County Jail on multiple charges.
