BOISE, Idaho — The Boise Police Department arrested a 19-year-old man on Wednesday in connection to a shooting that happened in a Boise neighborhood. No one was injured in the shooting, but several shots did hit one home.

Officers responded to reports of a suspect firing a gun several times at a home with people inside before leaving the scene in a vehicle. According to investigators, as the suspect drove away he crashed into a nearby trailer and continued driving.

The shooting happened at about 3:15 p.m. Wednesday in the area of Fairview Avenue and Cloverdale Road. 

When officers arrived at the home, they found no one was injured and then began collecting evidence and securing the scene. Police say based on the evidence, 19-year-old Dimitri Hanian of Meridian was their key suspect.
