Boise Towne Square active shooter – Two dead and four injured including cop as gunman goes on rampage at Idaho mall

TWO are reported dead and four more hospitalized following a shooting rampage at Boise Towne Square shopping mall in Idaho.

The suspect is reportedly in custody and a police officer is amongst those hospitalized, according to the Associated Press.


There is no current information about the identities of the shooter or victims.

In a conference, law enforcement told the press they exchanged gunfire with the suspect before taking them into custody.

Police Chief Ryan Lee stated reports started coming in around 1:50pm local time that “at least one person was shot and down.”

"Never should one have to, or does one expect when they're saying goodbye to a loved one who is headed to work, who is headed out to shop, that they'll get a call like they did today," Mayor Lauren McLean told reporters in a press conference.

"Countless people found themselves in a situation they never would have or should have expected." 

Authorities are reportedly clearing the location and searching for any other potential victims.

The Boise Towne Square Mall is known as the largest retail complex in Idaho and features more than 150 stores and restaurants.

Police interviewed witnesses outside of Macy's.

Other anchor stores include JCPenney, Kohl's and Dillard's.
