Idaho Tribal Officers On Leave Amid Shooting Probe

LEWISTON, Idaho - Three officers with the Nez Perce Tribal Police remain on paid leave while federal investigators probe the shooting death of a northern Idaho man.

The Lewiston Tribune reports 46-year-old Jeffery Allen Flinn of Lewiston died following a 50-mile car chase that ended in gunfire on Nov. 12. An FBI spokeswoman declined to
comment on the investigation into the U.S. Highway 95 shooting

Tribe attorney Darren Williams confirmed that three officers involved in the shooting remain on administrative leave.

Authorities say Flinn has been released from jail following a drunken driving arrest when he got involved in a one-vehicle crash outside Lewiston. Police say he took a truck from another motorist
and fled before officers arrived.

Tribal police say they spotted the pickup but the man refused to pull over.
