KOOTENAI COUNTY, Idaho.- One person is dead following a Tuesday afternoon shooting at an apartment complex on Government Way, just north of Dakota Ave. Now, the search for shooting suspect Chad Lee Moore has turned into a tri-state manhunt, with authorities from Washington to Montana watching out for any signs of him.

Crews were called to the apartment complex shortly before 3 p.m. where they found the victim, 28-year-old Ryan William Taylor of Coeur d'Alene.  Taylor was transported to the hospital with multiple gunshot wounds and was listed in critical condition.  Sheriff's officials confirmed just after 6 p.m. Tuesday that Taylor died as a result of his injuries.

The Kootenai County Sheriff's Department has identified the suspect as 35-year-old Chad Moore. Moore is said to be driving a blue Toyota pickup with white stripes. The license plate is from Idaho and the number is K433586.

Deputies searched the area near E. Hayden Lake Rd. in the Coeur d'Alene National Forest for the suspect Tuesday night.  The Spokane County Sheriff's Office Air One helicopter was called in to aid in the search for the suspect. Kootenai County authorities say they've alerted law enforcement agencies from Washington to Montana to be on the lookout for Chad Lee Moore. They say he could be headed anywhere.

Anyone with information on where Moore may be is asked to call 911. In a brief statement Tuesday afternoon sheriff's officials advised that anyone who spots Moore should not approach him because he is considered armed and dangerous.
