Deputies cleared in fatal southwest Idaho shooting

KUNA (AP) — A prosecutor has determined that the eight law enforcement officers who fired shots at a 32-year-old southwestern Idaho man who earlier shot at a police officer were justified in using lethal force.

Twin Falls County Prosecutor Grant Loebs announced his findings Friday after reviewing reports by an Ada County Critical Incident Task Force about the fatal shooting.

Ramon Milanez of Nampa died Jan. 24 after members of the Ada Metro SWAT team opened fire as Milanez tried to back out of a garage in a stolen vehicle at Kuna home he’d broken into.

Investigators said that Milanez didn’t have a gun at the time he was shot by police, but that his two guns were found with a backpack he dropped near the house he broke into.

The officers “had legitimate fears for their safety, the safety of their fellow officers, and the safety of the general public because of Milanez’s actions,” Loebs wrote.

Authorities say that Milanez earlier that day about 4 a.m. fired up to 10 times at a Kuna police officer who attempted to pull him over. The officer wasn’t injured.

Police later that morning found his abandoned BMW and about 10:30 a.m. found him hiding in a house in Kuna he’d broken into. A family with children in the home escaped.

Police sent a robot with a camera into the house that police say showed Milanez walking around with what Loebs said appeared to be a gun in his hand.

At 11 a.m., police say, Milanez got into a car at the residence and backed into the driveway. But an armored vehicle prevented the car from leaving, and police opened fire.

Grand Teton officials seek to reduce crowds at popular lake

MOOSE, Wyo. (AP) — Officials in Grand Teton National Park are trying to reduce big crowds at a popular place to paddle a canoe or have a picnic.

Park officials say as many as 400 vehicles at a time are squeezing into the parking lot at String Lake. The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports the parking lot has 165 designated spots.

Grand Teton officials are urging visitors to consider going elsewhere to picnic, such as Chapel of the Sacred Heart or Jackson Lake Dam.

They warn people parking outside designated spots could be ticketed.

Sewer line work closes portion of Rock Creek Canyon trail

TWIN FALLS — As crews begin replacing a sewer line under the Rock Creek Trail on Monday, portions of the trail will be closed through early December.

The work will be done by Extreme Excavation. For public safety during construction, the trail access will be closed near the city Parks and Recreation building and at Victory Bridge.

The work will not affect the trail that runs through Rock Creek Park north of Addison Avenue.

The contractor will replace nearly a mile of sewer line that was installed in the 1960s. The old line was installed to serve the city south of Rock Creek Canyon and has reached capacity.

The new sewer line is larger, up to 36 inches in diameter in some areas, and will allow for future growth south of Rock Creek.

Suspect in southwest Idaho killing found dead

MOUNTAIN HOME (AP) — A man wanted in connection with the killing of a southwestern Idaho woman has been found dead.

Officials say the body of 30-year-old Anthony Alan Johnson was found Friday in a heavily wooded area near a mobile home park in Mountain Home.

Elmore County Sheriff Mike Hollinshead tells the Idaho Statesman that it appears Johnson killed himself.

Police had been looking for Johnson after finding 25-year-old Justice Marie Gump dead at the wheel of her SUV that had hit a telephone pole on Wednesday morning near the mobile home park. Police said she died of a gunshot wound.

Hollinshead declined to disclose how or if Johnson and Gump knew each other.
