A wanted man along with two officers have been shot during a standoff on the Boise Bench this afternoon.

The conditions of the officers are unknown as they're being rushed to the hospital.

Here's the happenings according to KTVB.com...


Police say they believe the shooter is 33-year-old Marco Romero, who is wanted in connection with a double shooting in Meridian Tuesday night.

Romero was also shot, and is being treated by paramedics. It's unclear whether he is alive.

The shooting on Irving Street near the intersection with Roosevelt Street happened as police were doing a yard-to-yard search for Romero, who was spotted in the area by neighbors earlier Friday.

Police were unable to confirm whether a police dog was shot, but multiple Boise Police units - including a K9 unit - are gathered at the WestVet on Chinden Boulevard. Marco Romero Ada County Sheriff's Office

Police gathered at WestVet in Garden City Friday afternoon after two officers and a fugitive were shot on the Boise Bench.  

Boise Police used the reserve 911 system to tell residents in the area north of Emerald and east of Orchard to stay inside their homes. Reporters at the scene were told earlier to move back in case of "rifle fire."
A woman who identified herself as Romero's sister stood sobbing at the edge of the yellow crime tape with a group of people after the shooting. One member of the group called out to police, yelling "why can't you tell us?"
Police had previously warned that Romero should be considered armed and dangerous after investigators say he shot and injured a man and woman at the Cherry Lane Apartments. The suspect had been released on parole last month.
Authorities said Romero's family had reported he was acting strangely, and warned that he may have been planning additional acts of violence.  Romero was also believed to be connected to the carjacking of an 89-year-old in Meridian Thursday.
Dispatchers say police were originally called out to the Irving Street area because a stolen vehicle had been recovered. It's unclear if that car is the vehicle taken during the carjacking.
Friday's gunfire marks the third shooting involving police in the Treasure Valley in less than 24 hours.
The last time a Boise Police officer was shot was in June, when an officer responding to a shooting at a Bridlewood Court home was shot once in the chest. The officer was wearing a bulletproof vest, and escaped serious injury.
