From staff reports

Bond was set Friday at $1 million for a Coeur d’Alene man shot by police after he reportedly fired a gun within a crowd and toward officers at the end of the Fourth of July fireworks display near Independence Point.

Tyler Reece Rambo, 18, was arrested Thursday on charges of second-degree attempted murder and aggravated assault.

Rambo was set to appear in Kootenai County District Court for his initial appearance on Friday, and his bond was listed as $1 million on the Kootenai County Jail roster later the same day.

Eight officers reportedly chased Tyler Reece Rambo, 18, after a report of gunshots near the beach just after fireworks concluded and followed him to near the park basketball courts.

After Rambo did not respond to multiple commands to drop his weapon and a stun gun was unsuccessful, he turned toward the officers and fired a single shot from a revolver, police said.

The officers returned fire, striking him at least 10 times, according to police.

Rambo was transported to Kootenai Health in critical condition and KHQ reported he underwent major surgery. Rambo’s mother, Nicole Valencia, said he was released from the hospital Aug. 14.
