BOISE, Idaho — A Boise man is in custody after police say he shot another man at a Nampa home early Monday morning.

The suspect, 33-year-old Joseph Benjamin Dirilo, is charged with second-degree attempted murder.

The shooting happened at about 2:20 a.m. in the 1000 block of South Elder Street. 

According to Nampa Police, Dirilo's ex-wife called 911 to report that the suspect had turned up at the home with a gun. During a "disturbance" at that address, Dirilo shot another man who was present, police say.

The gunshot victim was taken to a local hospital by ambulance, and is expected to survive, police say. The suspect's ex-wife was unhurt. 

Dirilo was arrested by the arriving officers and booked into the Canyon County Jail.
