COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho -- Court documents are giving new details into the second arrest made at Independence Point on the Fourth of July following an officer-involved shooting.

Roshad Grant, 25, was arrested for resisting/obstruction after he approached officers following the shooting.

Coeur d’Alene Police said Tyler Rambo, 18, was involved in an altercation at Independence Point where witnesses said he fired one round at a person.

Officers in the area of Independence Point heard the gunshot, police said. Several officers in the area saw Rambo running away and chased him into City Park.

Coeur d’Alene Police Chief Lee White said officers told Rambo to drop his gun at least 15 times during the chase and he refused. At one point, Rambo stopped and officers used a Taser on him. Rambo then leveled his weapon horizontally, firing one shot then officers opened fire, White said.

Court documents said Grant approached officers who were responding to the shooting and said, “That’s my homie, my brother” while pointing at Rambo on the ground.

Officers tried to speak to Grant further but he started to walk away from them, documents said. Eventually he was able to get away from the officers and took off in a full sprint, documents explained.

Officers saw Grant sprint into a crowd at Independence Point and witnesses told them he had headed to the Independence Point dock, documents said. Grant was eventually detained and placed in handcuffs.

Court documents said Grant had a small laceration to his left eyebrow and an abrasion to his left elbow. Officers said his white t-shirt was soiled with dirt and vomit. He declined medical attention. Court documents said Grant appeared highly intoxicated.

Grant originally told officers the altercation Rambo was involved in was started “due to a drunk miscommunication,” but later denied any knowledge of what happened, documents said. He told police that he “simply heard a series of shots and went to help a brother,” documents said. Grant later denied knowing Rambo, documents said.

Court documents said multiple witnesses saw Grant with a black firearm while he was running from officers. Witnesses also saw him trip on one of the bridges over the water feature at Independence Point, causing him to fall on the rocks, documents said. Officers said the fall led to Grant’s injuries and induced his vomiting, documents said. Grant’s identification was also found in the water, according to documents.

Officers attempted to look for a firearm but were unable to locate it. Documents said Grant denied being in possession of a gun.

Grant did tell officers he had an altercation with a man who was referring to him as a “junkie,” documents said.

He was later booked into the Kootenai County Jail.

Grant made his court appearance Friday where he pleaded not guilty. His bond was set at $10,000.
