GOODING — A woman was shot late Tuesday afternoon by sheriff’s deputies near Wendell, says the Gooding County sheriff.
Sheriff Shaun Gough said his office responded to a domestic call to 1918 S. 2200 E., east of Gooding and found the woman standing in the road with a rifle. She pointed the rifle at the deputies and deputies told her repeatedly to put the rifle down.
“Shots were fired,” Gough said.
The woman, who was alive when she was taken to the North Canyon Medical Center, Gough said, has not been identified.
Gough declined to take further questions Tuesday night.
