Boise officer cleared of wrongdoing in March 3 shooting

A Boise police officer who was forced to fire her duty weapon at a suspect earlier this year has been cleared of any wrongdoing, Twin Falls County Prosecutor Grant Loebs says.

Boise officer cleared of wrongdoing in March 3 shooting

The incident dates back to the night of March 3 when Boise officers responded to reports of a domestic disturbance at a home near the intersection of Clinton Street and North Roosevelt Street across the street from the Morris Hill Cemetery.

Police said Officer Michelle Havens had to fire one shot at 38-year-old Jennie Timmons.

Timmons, police said, did not heed to their verbal commands and brandished a handgun-style bb gun that looked like a real firearm.

The shot fired by Officer Havens didn't hit Timmons.

Timmons was arrested on charges of aggravated assault reported earlier in the evening.
