In brief: Coeur d’Alene tribal police look for shooting suspect


Coeur d’Alene tribal police are searching for a man tied to a Worley, Idaho, shooting early Saturday that left another man hospitalized.

Timothy Ray Allen Jr., a 22-year-old tribal member, is suspected of shooting another man in the groin area.

Police discovered the shooting after they were called to a Worley home for a domestic attack. As they cleared the scene, officers noticed blood leading to a different room in the home.

They developed Allen as a suspect and reported Sunday that he has a violent criminal history including assault and eluding police.

Tribal police spokeswoman Heather Keen said the victim is a member of another tribe living in the Worley area. She did not know whether the victim knew Allen or if police have a shooting motive.

School shooting victim remembered

PORTLAND – Friends and family said the 14-year-old shot and killed by a classmate at an Oregon high school earlier this month loved soccer, selfies and making people laugh.

The Oregonian reported that a public service was held Sunday for Emilio Hoffman, the lone victim of the shooting June 10 at Reynolds High School east of Portland.

His mother, Jennifer Hoffman, teachers and classmates spoke about the spunky boy who cracked jokes on the soccer field, took silly selfies and carried out pranks.

Emilio Hoffman was killed in the boys’ locker room by a fellow freshman, 15-year-old Jared Padgett, who later killed himself.
