Two people were killed Monday night in a shooting near the intersection of N. 1st Street and Spokane Avenue in Coeur d’Alene. Authorities said a teenager arrested in the incident was expected to be charged as an adult in the case.
Police said the shooting occurred at a home around 9:30 p.m. Officers found the two people dead when they arrived at the scene. The victims were not immediately identified.
A 14-year-old suspect was taken into custody Monday night, according to officers, and was booked on two counts of First Degree Murder. The teen was being held without bond.
Police were still investigating the shooting for motive late Monday night, but said it appeared the victims and suspect knew each other. The nature of their relationship was unclear, however.
Officials removed the bodies from the scene early Tuesday morning. Investigators said they planned to release more information regarding the case later in the day.
The executive director of North Idaho's St. Vincent de Paul told KREM 2 News the home where the shooting took place was one of the organization's emergency housing program units. He said in St. Vincent de Paul's 68-year history in the area, they had "never" seen anything like this in one of their homes.
"It's very sad," the director said.
The suspect was expected to make an initial court appearance Tuesday afternoon.
