The Ada County Critical Incident Task Force is investigating the officer-involved shooting of a 34-year-old Boise man who fired at deputies serving a warrant at a home on West Granger Avenue Tuesday afternoon. The man’s injuries do not appear to be life-threatening.
Three deputies with the Ada County Sheriff’s Office ACTION (Anti-Crime Team In Our Neighborhoods) Unit went to a home in the 9900 block of West Granger at about 12:15pm to serve an arrest warrant on Robert Coy for a felony charge of falsifying documents.
Deputies were trying to arrest Coy when the 65-year-old started resisting. The man’s son, Bryan Coy, 34, was in the house and fired a pistol at the officers. Deputies returned fire.
Bryan Coy was taken to a local hospital with injuries that do not appear to be life-threatening. A warrant has been issued for Coy on a charge of aggravated assault with a $1-million bond. When he is released from the hospital, Coy will be moved to the Ada County Jail and booked on the felony assault warrant.
Robert Coy was transported to the Ada County Jail where he was booked on the felony charge of offering a false or forged instrument. He is being held on a $10,000 bond. Additional charges are possible.
The three officers who fired at Coy are all members of the ACTION Team: Sgt. Pat Schneider, who has been with the ACSO for 17 years; Deputy Ryan Donelson who has been with the agency for 12 years; and Deputy Terry Lakey who has been with the ACSO for 11 years.
The Critical Incident Task Force does an independent investigation of all uses of lethal force by law enforcement in Ada County. Boise Police is the lead agency for this incident. Investigators are still determining how many rounds were fired.
No one else was at the home during the incident.
