FORT HALL - Fort Hall Police Chief Pat Teton said they are investigating the shooting of Shoshone-Bannock tribal member Darrell Auck by Anthony Ish, also a tribal member.
Chief Teton said the FHPD received an anonymous telephone call at 12:41 a.m. October 15 reporting someone was shot at the Ish residence on East Agency Road in Fort Hall.
Officers responded and did locate evidence outside of the home that indicated someone was hurt. FHPD investigators interviewed several witnesses that said Anthony Ish, 32, shot Darrell Auck, 44, outside the residence.
A tribal arrest warrant was issued for Ish for assault with a deadly weapon because the Tribal Law & Order Code doesn't include homicide or murder charges. He is incarcerated in Fort Hall Corrections. However Teton said Ish would face federal homicide or murder charges.
The FHPD is continuing the investigation, along with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
