Police Search for Evidence and Shooter

jacksonpolice

The search continues for an alleged gunman who shot and injured a young Jackson man yesterday afternoon near his home in the Cottonwood Park Subdivision. Officers returned to the area today to look for more clues.
Police made a public announcement that they would be in the area again to search for evidence but wanted residents to know that the police presence was not a sign of danger in the area.

Police are now identifying the victim as 19-year-old Chancy Shaffer. Police Chief Todd Smith says the shooting was reported shortly before 1:30 pm as the father of the victim was driving him to the hospital for treatment. Smith says police responded to both the hospital and the residence – checking the residence for any other possible victims and determining where the shooting took place.

Today Smith says police are trying to determine the identity of the attacker through leads generated by the investigation and tips the police have received from the public. The attacker was described as being fairly young and wearing blue jeans, a black hoodie, and a bandana over his face. Smith says at this point, investigations lead police to believe the shooting was not random.

Search Warrant in Shooting Case

jacksonpolice

Jackson Police Chief Todd Smith said that a search warrant was executed yesterday evening at the home of the victim of a shooting in Jackson. Police didn’t indicate that the search yielded much information, but they did say the search was still underway for a suspect in the case.

The incident occurred about 1:30 pm Tuesday in the Cottonwood Park area of Jackson. The 19 year-old was apparantly shot within 750 feet of his home. He was able to get back to his house and told his father that he had been shot.

He was taken to the St. John’s emergency room for treatment and later flown to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls. There is no update on his condition.

At this time, Smith said the shooter remains at large. He was described as a young male, wearing a black hoodie and a black bandana over his face – and possibly wearing sunglasses at the time. The suspect is said to have fled on foot carrying a silver-colored handgun. Police are seeking information about the suspect and Crimestoppers is offering a reward of up to $5000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual. Reports may be phoned to 733-2331 or Crimestoppers at 733-5148.

If you see the suspect, do not approach.
