Coeur D'Alene Police Investigating Drive-By Shooting, Roughly 10 Shots Fired

Posted: Updated:
COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho -

It's a crime you don't often hear about – especially in the resort town of Coeur D'Alene – but tonight police are searching for whoever sprayed bullets into the side of an apartment complex which houses mostly seniors and people with disabilities.

The shooting happened just before midnight in the 3000 block of North Government Way. Witnesses reported seeing someone in a dark red or maroon mid-90's 4-door car, possibly a Toyota Corolla, firing the shots driving southbound on 2nd Street – then taking off.

Police marked roughly 10 bullet holes as evidence Monday morning, sprayed into tree trunks, the side of the apartment complex and damaging the sidewalk.

"I heard loud pops and booms," resident Lydia Priddy told KHQ. "I thought it was big firecrackers or something, I heard it hit the wall... my sister came and checked and said the place had been shot up."

Priddy has at least three bullet holes in the side of her unit – one on the outside of her bedroom wall where she'd been sleeping.

Amazingly, nobody was hurt in the shooting, but the bullets hit dangerously close to home and the fact that police don't yet know who did it – or why – has left a lot of people scared.

"I have no idea why someone would pinpoint this building," Priddy added.

So far, Coeur D'Alene police don't know the motive behind the shooting or if it could have been random.

Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for information in the case. You can remain anonymous, just call 208-667-2111 or 1-800-222-TIPS or submit a tip online at www.crimestoppersinlandnorthwest.org.
