Teen involved in highway shootings back in custody

MOSCOW, Idaho. - One of two teens Latah County Sheriff's deputies believe was involved in the shooting of several vehicles on State Highway 8 is back in custody after authorities discovered a pipe bomb in a home connected to the teen.

The shootings took place over a three-hour period on January 22. Latah County sheriff's officers arrested the Deary High School students after receiving at least 20 reports of vehicles being hit by shots fired on the rural roadway.

The teens, who have both been charged with two counts of unlawful discharge of a firearm at a vehicle, appeared in juvenile court on Monday, according to the Lewiston Tribune.

The sheriff's office said no one was hurt and a majority of the vehicles hit were tractor-trailer rigs. The teens were then released into the custody of their parents.

Thursday, as part of an ongoing investigation into the shootings, Latah County authorities served a search warrant at home in Helmer they say is connected to the teen. During that search, deputies discovered a pipe bomb. The Spokane Bomb Squad was called to dispose of the device.

Authorities then took the 14-year-old back into custody and he is now facing an additional charge of Unlawful Possession of Bombs or Destructive Devices.
