CHUBBUCK, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) - UPDATE 9-30 2:30 p.m.: Chubbuck Police have released a surveillance picture of the car they believe was involved in a shooting incident early Tuesday morning.
Police said they have reason to believe that the license plates that were on the vehicle may have been removed or replaced with alternate plates.

The vehicle has a sunroof and there appears to be damage to the rear dash. The paint on the car also appears to be a spray can black. There is also some type of add-on accessory below the rear bumper.
Anyone with information about the location of the vehicle should contact the Chubbuck Police Department at 208 237 7172.
