A Meridian man has been booked into the Ada County Jail after witnesses told people someone fired multiple shots toward a group of people.

“Witnesses say a man in a vehicle fired multiple shots in the general direction of a group of people. The suspect also drove his vehicle toward a victim, causing the victim to have to jump out of the way,” stated a Boise Police Department news release.
