Men shot in CdA seek payment

A Moses Lake man shot in downtown Coeur d'Alene has filed a complaint against the accused shooter, seeking at least $10,000 to cover medical costs and other damages.

Bradley J. Phillips, 25, was shot in the leg Dec. 27 in downtown Coeur d'Alene. A complaint filed Tuesday in Idaho’s 1st District Court says 25-year-old Adam M. Johnson negligently shot Phillips, resulting in more than $2,000 in medical costs.

Phillips' friend Brandon R. Burgess, who was shot in the stomach, filed a complaint last week seeking lost wages, pain and suffering, and medical expenses he said have exceeded $10,000, according to a lawsuit filed Wednesday in Idaho’s 1st District Court.

Johnson is in Kootenai County Jail on charges of attempted murder and aggravated battery. He said he shot the men, who were with six others visiting Burgess' mom for Christmas, out of fear.

Johnson is due in court tomorrow at 1:30 p.m. for a probable cause hearing. A grand jury has been hearing testimony in the case.
