Update from Ada County Sheriff’s Office regarding the active shooting situation today near Eagle & 44.

According to preliminary reports, a man aged 38 entered a business in the Eagle Road/Eagle River Street area on Wednesday afternoon, around 1 p.m., and shot two individuals, resulting in the death of one woman and the injury of another.

The shooter then exited the building, got into a car parked in the lot, and shot himself in the head. He was transported to a nearby hospital in critical condition.

The injured woman is currently receiving medical treatment at a local hospital for what seem to be severe but non-fatal injuries.
