Man shot by police in Nampa expected to survive gunshot wound
NAMPA, Idaho (KBOI) - An officer involved shooting sent one person to the hospital with a gun shot wound. It happened a little before 9 p.m. Sunday on the 5700 block of Oak Street in East Nampa.

It all started when a family member called police, worried about a relative who was creating a disturbance with a gun. When police arrived at the house, they convinced the man to come outside to talk to them. But when he came out the front door: he had a gun.

Police say they gave multiple commands to put the gun down, but the man confronted officers and multiple shots were fired.

At that point police evacuated neighboring homes. "The suspect retreated back into the residence, barricaded himself and officers locked the scene down. At that time we activated our SWAT personal and crisis negotiator team," Said Chief Deputy Kieran Donahue of the Canyon County Sheriff's Office.

The SWAT team was able to convince the male resident to come back outside of the home. The suspect then surrendered to police.

The man was transported to a local hospital with a gun shot wound, but he is expected to live. No officers were injured in the shooting.
