Idaho man arrested, to face murder and assault charges

An Idaho man shot by police after a Fourth of July fireworks display has been arrested and faces murder and assault charges.

The Coeur d’Alene Press reports the Coeur d’Alene Police Department arrested 18-year-old Tyler Rambo on Thursday following an investigation last month into the July shooting.

Officials say it is likely the arrest warrant wasn’t served until this week because Rambo was recovering in the hospital from having parts of his legs amputated due to injuries from the shooting.

Authorities say officers responded to a report that Rambo had fired a gun at someone and they repeatedly asked him to drop his firearm before shooting him multiple times.

Authorities say charges are expected to be court-filed after Rambo’s first court appearance Sept. 13.
