Shooting in Rexburg Idaho – Rexburg shooting

REXBURG — Police in Rexburg are searching for a suspect in a drive-by shooting at a Rexburg motel Friday morning. Rexburg Police Department Assistant Chief Gary Hagen explains the shooting happened around 10 a.m. at Motel 6 along South 12th West.

Police are asking people to avoid the area as they investigate. “Sounds like it’s an isolated incident at this time,” Hagen says. Preliminary details indicate the suspect was an African American man driving with an African American woman. They were inside a newer black pickup truck pulling a black gooseneck flatbed trailer, according to Hagen.

Officers have no injuries to report at this time. Madison School District officials confirm there is a soft shelter in place order at Burton Elementary School, Madison High School, and Madison Middle School.
