'The strangest call I've ever gotten on the Senate floor'

'The strangest call I've ever gotten on the Senate floor'
BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - A man shot in the leg in south Boise stumbled to an Idaho lawmaker's house after an apparent drug-related incident Monday.

And now deputies are looking for three men believed to be involved in the shooting.

The Ada County Sheriff's Office says deputies received a report of a man with a gunshot wound on the 4000 block of South Linder.

Officials say the 36-year-old victim got out of the car when one of the people still in the vehicle fired a handgun. Investigators say the suspect fired the weapon four or five times, hitting the victim once in the leg.

The suspects’ vehicle is described as a late-1990’s or early-2000’s model black, four-door Mercedes Benz. The car has a tan interior and dark tinted windows. It was last seen driving at a high rate of speed west on Victory as it left the area.

The bleeding man stumbled to the nearest house, which was about 30-40 yards away. He made his way to the front door and knocked for help.

It just happened to be the home of Idaho Sen. Russ Fulcher.

"It was the strangest call I've ever gotten on the Senate floor," Fulcher told KBOI 2News.

Fulcher, the majority caucus chairman, says his children, who were home on spring break from college, called him on the Senate floor and said "there was man bleeding and knocking on the door."

"I told them to call the police," he said.

The man was taken to a local hospital and is stable condition. Everyone inside the home was OK. The house was not hit by any bullets.

Anyone with information is asked to call 343-COPS.
