Two Idaho police officers and a police dog were shot and a wanted fugitive was killed in a shooting in Boise on Friday afternoon, police said.

Investigators believe the suspect is a 33-year-old man named Marco Romero wanted in connection with a shooting that injured two in nearby Meridian on Tuesday, KTVB-TV reported.

An emergency crew rushed the two wounded Boise officers to the hospital and the police dog Jardo to a veterinarian, according to Boise police. Hospital staff pronounced Romero dead on his arrival, police said.

One of the officers went into surgery Friday while the other received treatment in the emergency room, according to police.

Meridian police said Romero shot a man and a woman he knows late Tuesday, the Statesman reported. The man suffered two wounds but was thought to be OK, while the woman may be paralyzed after suffering a wound to her chest, according to police.

Investigators believe he may also have stolen a car from an 89-year-old woman at a Meridian retirement community on Thursday morning.

Authorities released Romero on supervised parole Oct. 3 after time behind bars on charges of possession of a controlled substance and leaving the scene of an accident resulting in injury, state offender records showed.

As of this writing the two human officers are expected to live. Police dog Jardo is also recovering from his surgery.

  1. Regards the perpetrator’s photo, I can picture him on the top of an Aztec ziggurat cutting out someone’s heart for a human sacrifice.

  2. One officer was released to home today, Officer Chris Davis a 16 year veteran. Off. Davis was one of the shooters. The second officer, not named, is a 17 year veteran. He has a “very long period of recovery and reconstruction” ahead. K9 Jardo took a bullet to his chest and lost a lung. He is in good condition after surgery last night and the police chief is hoping he will be discharged to his handler’s home tonight.
