Drive-by Shooting in Chubbuck Injures Woman

For the second time in two weeks, Chubuck has been the scene of gunfire when a man opened fire on a house in a residential neighborhood Monday.

According to the Idaho State Journal, a woman inside the home was wounded by the gunfire. During last week’s shooting, a man was fatally shot outside a convenience store in broad daylight along one of Chubbuck’s busiest streets.

At around 5:45 Monday, and individual opened fire with about six rounds at a modular home in the 500 block of Briarwood Street in what appears to be a drive-by shooting. A woman was injured in the shooting, but police have yet to release her name.

Chubbuck police said witnesses reported that the shooter was in a newer white hatchback car with three other individuals. The vehicle was last seen heading east on Chubbuck Road in the area of the Bannock County fairgrounds.

The shooter is described as being a white male approximately 5 feet 7 inches in height with a thin build and short hair. He was wearing a black baseball hat, black hoodie and black pants. Police are warning to not approach the suspect.

Any information on the shooting should be provided to Chubbuck police immediately at 208-237-7172.
