Police Investigate Weekend Death In East Twin Falls County
One man is dead and another is under arrest after a series of incidents that occurred in Twin Falls County Sunday morning. Police were involved in a vehicle pursuit of a brown Ford Taurus which ended near Hansen. Later Sunday morning, that same brown Ford Taurus was reported as being involved in a possible accident on 3500 E in Twin Falls County. Witnesses reported a male lying in the roadway in front of the brown Ford Taurus and a male in the driver’s seat of the vehicle. Police officers and Sheriff’s deputies arrived and confronted the driver, who was still in the driver’s seat of the running Taurus. The driver refused orders to turn off the vehicle. So they physically removed him and placed him under arrest for resisting and obstructing an officer. Officers discovered that the male lying in the roadway in front of the vehicle was dead. There were apparent gunshot wounds to his body. Police have not released the victim’s name or the suspect’s. So far the suspect has only been charged with resisting and obstructing an officer.
