Idaho law enforcement officers shoot man after standoff


DALTON GARDENS, Idaho (AP) — Law enforcement officers in northern Idaho shot a man they described as armed and suicidal after an hours-long standoff at a Dalton Gardens home Monday evening. The man was treated at a nearby hospital, and neither his name nor his condition were released. The Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office said deputies and officers from the Coeur d’Alene Police Department were called to a report of a suicidal and armed man at a home 2 p.m., and they communicated with him for a few hours. But around 5:30 p.m. the sheriff’s office said the man brandished a gun at officers, and deputies and officers shot at him. No one else was injured.
