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.

There’s no word on the condition of a 19-year-old shooting victim from Cottonwood Park who was flown to Idaho Falls yesterday for further treatment of his injury. Police have asked that his name be kept confidential. The incident took place sometime after 1:30 pm and prompted the lockdown of all area schools until about a half-hour after normal dismissal time. Officers responded immediately from both the police and sheriff’s department. At this time, however, the alleged shooter remains at large. He was described as a younger 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.

School Bill Allots Money

Gingery

The Wyoming House of Representatives are considering a bill that would restructure the way school districts receive funding derived from property taxes within their own counties. Under the current system, Representative Keith Gingery explains that the money received is placed into one general fund and then re-distributed based upon the number of students in that district. Gingery points out that this is one of the most important bills that will directly affect Teton County this year. Gingery was successful on amending the bill to benefit the Dubois School District as well, which is also part of his district. The Gingery amendment expanded the small school district definition from 147 students to 243 students, which will provide extra funds to Dubois Schools. Major discussions have centered around transportation issues. Transportation costs are reimbursed at 100% to school districts. Gingery says another bill is still pending which would increase the money available to Teton County for its English Language Learners program.

300 Bison Detained

StephensCreek

A group of about 300 bison was hazed into the Stephens Creek bison capture facility on Monday after they wandered nearly 10 miles during the night onto private and public land north of Corwin Springs on Saturday and Sunday. Last week, 88 bison had been released from the facility and moved south into the park. Stephens Creek which is located inside the northern boundary of Yellowstone National Park, northwest of Gardiner, Montana, is operated under the Interagency Bison Management Plan. Under that plan, bison can be captured at the capture facility when hazing bison back into the park becomes unsafe or ineffective. Captured bison will be tested for exposure to brucellosis and seropositive bison will be shipped to slaughter with meat from bison to be distributed to tribal groups and regional food banks. Seronegative bison will be held in the facility for spring release back into the park.
