A teenage boy was shot by an adult man Tuesday evening, according to the Bonner County Sheriff’s Office.
The injuries to the victim were not life-threatening and he was released from Kootenai Medical Center later that night, Sheriff’s Capt. Tim Hempill said. The shooting occurred outdoors at a private residence.
The sheriff’s office received the call at about 5:45 p.m. and alerted residents of heavy police activity at 6:30 p.m. People in the area of Stoneridge Golf Resort were advised to remain indoors and to watch for suspicious activity.
The sheriff’s office has not made any arrests, but Hempill said the public is not at risk.
He said it is a “very active” investigation and no other details have been confirmed. The sheriff’s office said it will release more information as it becomes available.
