Twin Falls Prosecutors Office Clears E. Idaho Police in Shooting
POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) — An investigation into the officer-involved shooting death of a Pocatello man who had confessed to killing his girlfriend found the shooting was justified. Pocatello police investigated the Jan. 16 shooting of Boede Paul during a standoff on the Fort Hall Reservation.
The report was forwarded to the Twin Falls County prosecutor’s office, who announced Wednesday that no charges would be filed. Officials have said Paul called the Bannock County sheriff’s office on Jan. 16 and asked to meet with officers. He confessed to killing his girlfriend, Angelea Schultz, and showed officers the construction site where she was buried.
Paul then pulled a pistol on detectives and led them back to his house. A six-hour standoff ended when Paul got out of his pickup truck and fired shots at SWAT officers, who returned fire.
