TWIN FALLS — A man who allegedly shot an unoccupied car outside a home Sunday night had threatened to kill everyone inside the residence, police say.
Dispatchers had received a call about a threat at 2965 Falls Ave. E. Kevin Duran, 28, of Twin Falls, had reportedly been threatening his ex-girlfriend and her boyfriend, but left before police could arrive.
Police reviewed text messages from Duran to his ex-girlfriend’s mother earlier that day in which he threatened violence against the boyfriend.
“I’m going to kill him … my word white power white race I promise and very sorry,” read one message quoted in the police report. “I will pull the trigger I hope he doez.”
Witnesses report Duran fired several rounds into the boyfriend’s car and tried to break into the house. Children were inside at the time.
Duran has a 2009 felony conviction for child cruelty out of California. He is not allowed to possess a firearm.
Police discovered Duran at the HUB truck stop in Minidoka County, where he was arrested. A full 14-round, 40 caliber magazine to a semi-automatic pistol was found inside the vehicle he was driving.
Duran was held at the Twin Falls County Jail for aggravated assault and unlawful possession of a firearm.
