Officer involved shooting in Idaho has ties to Missoula

Posted: Updated:

Late Friday night, several law enforcement agencies, including the Shoshone County Sheriff's Office, came to assist Idaho State Police in trying to initiate a traffic stop on a vehicle that was eluding officers throughout the City of Kellogg.

In a Facebook post from the Shoshone County Sheriffs Office, the pursuit became a manhunt within the City of Kellogg as the suspect, Tyle Lee Potts, 32 years of age male, Missoula, Montana, fled from the vehicle he was driving and was on foot.  An officer-involved shooting occurred with one of the local law enforcement entities; however, no injuries were sustained by any party. The suspect was located and arrested approximately two hours after the incident started.
