Boise Police are still investigating a shooting on the 900 block of Belmont Street at 2:45 Friday morning. Officers found one male adult with a fatal gunshot wound.

The deceased has been identified as 22-year-old Robert Eugene B. Skinner, according to the Ada County Coroner. The coroner says next of kin has been notified.

The cause of death was a single gunshot wound to the neck, police say, and officers initially thought the victim suffered an unintentional self-inflicted gunshot wound, but officers have determined the wound was not self inflicted.
