(BOISE) – Attorney General Lawrence Wasden has announced Investigators with his Idaho Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Unit were involved in an incident that resulted in the death of a subject near Weippe Wednesday morning.

Members of the unit, along with officers from several local law enforcement agencies, served a search warrant at a home around 8:45 a.m. While securing the scene, officers encountered a man who brandished a handgun. Preliminary evidence indicates the man initially pointed the gun at himself and later pointed it at officers. Two officers fired their weapons, striking the man. The subject died at the scene. The officers were not injured.  

The incident is under investigation by the Region Two Officer Involved Critical Incident Task Force.
