A number of law enforcement agencies responded beginning at about 11:30 p.m. last night, July 28, after an individual responded with gunfire as Owyhee County Sheriff's Office deputies performed a welfare check at the individual's home.  

The male subject fled in his vehicle, leading deputies on a pursuit into the Owyhee Mountains area.  By 1:07 a.m. July 29, Owyhee County deputies requested assistance from other law enforcement agencies and that request was answered by:
- Nampa PD
- Caldwell PD
- Canyon County Sheriff's Office
- Idaho State Police

The individual stopped driving at approximately 1:07 a.m. July 29 when his vehicle became disabled / wrecked on Hard Trigger Road in Owyhee County.  A standoff ensued, and he continued firing intermittently on law enforcement officers before he was shot and killed by law enforcement officers at approximately 6:40 a.m. July 29.
