ADA COUNTY -- Three Ada County Sheriff's deputies and a Boise Police officer were involved in a shooting Saturday morning that sent a 41-year-old man to the hospital.

Just after midnight, Ada County dispatch got a report that an armed man in a Kuna home pointed a gun at and threatened a male relative.

The sheriff's office says he then left that Kuna home on Madera Place. Deputies spent the night trying to ping the man's cell phone to get his location.

At about 2:30 a.m. the suspect called emergency dispatchers threatening to hurt himself or others.

Around 3 a.m. the man was spotted on Cloverdale getting out of the truck, pointing a gun a himself then getting back in and driving away.

The sheriff's office says they followed the man and Meridian Police joined the effort by deploying a spike strip. That's where they finally caught up with him at the intersection of Cloverdale and Barker Roads in South Ada County.

Ada County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Andrea Dearden says the man got out of his truck and pointed his gun at the deputies and an officer. The four of them fired their weapons hitting the man multiple times.

The 41-year-old Kuna man was taken to St. Alphonsus Medical Center and is expected to survive.

At this point it's unclear how many shots were fired or how many times the man was hit. The shooting is now being investigated by the Ada County Critical Incident Task Force.
