Suspect in custody after active shooter situation near the University of Idaho campus

No injuries have been reported at this time.



A single individual has been apprehended in Moscow, and the previously issued shelter-in-place advisory has been lifted.

This comes after a police response earlier in the day following reports of gunshots in the South Almon Street neighborhood.

There is no ongoing danger to the community, and there have been no reported injuries.

An individual, aged 54, has been apprehended and faces charges related to the unauthorized use of firearms, creating a public disturbance, and resisting/obstructing law enforcement officers.

The suspect was conveyed to Latah County Jail. Moscow Police received a report of gunshots in the vicinity of the 100 block of S. Almon St. around 2:05 a.m.

The public received guidance to steer clear of the area while the police conducted an investigation and identified the suspect.

Multiple law enforcement agencies, including the Latah County Regional SWAT Team, Idaho State Police, City of Pullman Police Department, WSU Police, and Nez Perce County Sheriff’s Office, provided assistance to Moscow Police when the individual barricaded themselves on S. Almon Street.

Both the University of Idaho and the City of Moscow issued numerous alerts throughout the morning.

The morning commute was disrupted as several streets had to be temporarily closed, including A Street and Pullman Road at Line Street, A Street at C Street, N. Main Street at D Street, Asbury and Almon at Sixth Street, and Third Street west of Main Street.
