BOISE -- Boise police are looking for suspects after an overnight shooting sent one woman and two men to the hospital. Officers believe the shooting is an isolated incident, and the public is not in further danger.

Lt. Stan Niccolls says one of the shooting victims called 911 around 11:30 p.m. Thursday to report a shooting.

The three adults who were shot live together at the home on the 2100 block of South Orchard Street in south Boise. That's where the shooting happened.

The woman and two men were taken to the hospital. Their conditions are unknown.

However, Lt. Niccols did say detectives were taking statements from the victims early Friday morning.


"What we're working on right now, we don't have much of a description of who the shooters are. What we're asking for the public to help us with is that if they hear anybody talking about a shooting last night that they call police dispatch right away," said Lt. Niccolls.

Boise police don't think the shooting was random.

"We also think that these people may know each other. We don't think the public is at risk at all in this, so we don't want the public to be fearful, but if they do hear something we want a phone call," added Lt. Niccolls.

If you have any information about the shooting, call Boise police.

"If anybody driving down Orchard at about 11:30 last night saw anything that looked funny, cars speeding away, we could use any sort of tips or info that they might have," added Lt. Niccolls.
