BOISE, Idaho — A man arrested for a west Boise murder appeared in court for the first time Monday.

Officials say 24-year-old Carlos Sandoval has been charged with the shooting death of a Boise man. Prosecutors say the attack was planned.

"While in custody the defendant confessed to this crime. He admitted that he planned it, he admitted that he shot the victim, and he also admitted that if he was given the chance he would do it again," said Tamara Kelly, Prosecuting Attorney.

Police responded to a shooting on Fry Street near Curtis and Fairview on Friday afternoon, where they found both a male, who has been identified as 45-year-old Antoine Jones of Boise, and female victim with gunshot wounds. Both were taken to a Boise hospital, but Jones succumbed to his injuries. The female victim was treated and released.

Sandoval was taken into custody around 8:00 PM Friday after police searched for him for nearly four hours.

A motive for the shooting has not yet been released.

Sandoval is currently being held without bond.
