A Bingham County Deputy was shot and has a long road to recovery. In a statement released Wednesday afternoon, Bingham County Sheriff Craig Rowland said, "On August 4, 2021 at about 7:50 a.m. the Bingham County Dispatch center put out a call of a hit-and-run driver who had struck a vehicle and left. At 7:58 a.m., a Blackfoot Police officer found the vehicle and was involved in a short low speed pursuit. The suspect vehicle crashed and three people ran from the vehicle. One of the occupants was contacted by law enforcement and at that time the suspect shot a Bingham County detective. The detective was was taken to the hospital for treatment. After the detective was hit, one of the three suspects’ body was found at the scene of the shooting and a second suspect is in custody. The third suspect has been identified, at this time we are not releasing any further information."
A Code 3 to 1 member (and FOP national board member) has been with the injured deputy. The deputy will take some time to recover. His wife has taken a leave of absence from work to care for the injured deputy. All proceeds will go to the injured deputy.
