TWIN FALLS • A man shot to death Saturday night in Twin Falls was the son of a prominent local developer.
“Police told me not to say anything,” said Gary Storrer, whose son was gunned down on the Storrer property on Hankins Road North. “I will tell you this: It was a flat out cold-blooded murder and there was no reason for what they did. They just wanted to kill someone.”
Police have arrested two men: Jerry Burton Kimball, 22, and Jacob Lyn Marshall, 20, in the death of 53-year-old Kent Storrer. Wounded in the shooting was Storrer’s son-in-law, 32-year-old Jasper Qualls.
Marshall and Kimball came to the house at 1475 N. Hankins Road to test drive a 1991 Mistubishi 3000 VR4 Qualls was trying to sell. After the drive, Marshall shot Qualls and Storrer and took off with Kimball in the Mitsubishi, said court documents filed Monday.
Storrer was pronounced dead at the hospital and Qualls was treated and released.
Qualls said the gun Marshall used was an assault-type rifle, according to the affidavit.
Marshall was arrested about 11 p.m. Saturday with an AR-15 assault rifle in his possession in Jerome after he rammed a police car with the stolen Mitsubishi, the documents said. He is charged with first-degree murder with a deadly-weapon enhancement. The enhancement adds 15 years to a prison sentence, if convicted.
Kimball was arrested Sunday night after turning himself in at the Twin Falls County Sheriff’s Office. He is charged with aiding and abetting first-degree murder.
Marshall and Kimball were arraigned Monday and are being held without bond. Both men have a preliminary hearing scheduled for Aug. 7.
“We are confident that we have both people involved in custody now,” Sheriff Tom Carter said Monday morning.
Qualls gave police a detailed description of the shooters, including a description of Marshall’s physical appearance and clothing, according to court documents. Qualls later picked Kimball out of a lineup.
In an interview with police described in court records, Kimball said he knew Marshall intended to steal the car, either “by force or by killing someone.”
