A man is dead after a shooting at the Park Village Apartments complex off of Sherwood Street in Boise early this morning.
Police have arrested 30-year-old Adam Bodenbach in connection with the shooting. He is in the Ada County Jail charged with first-degree murder.
The Ada County coroner on Friday afternoon identified the victim as 20-year-old Ryan Harrison Banks of Boise. He died from a gunshot wound to the chest.
The shooting occurred just after midnight. When officers arrived they found a man who had been shot. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Boise police say the victim and Bodenbach did know each other. Initial reports are that this shooting started with a disagreement between them.
Bodenbach was arraigned Friday afternoon. In court, prosecutors said Banks was over at Bodenbach's apartment when the two of them got into the fight.
"Witnesses say he was high on methamphetamine. He got in a physical fight at his apartment with Ryan Banks, that fight ended and they separated," Ada County Prosecuting Attorney Ben Harmer said.
Prosecutors say after the physical altercation Banks went back to his apartment. They added Bodenbach's roommate left to go check on Banks at his home. Prosecutors say the roommate and Banks decided at that time they would leave and try to make peace with Bodenbach.
"As they walked out of the apartment, the defendant was walking toward them. The victim was in front of the witness and the defendant was coming at them from the other direction. He had a gun out and from 5 to 6 feet away he shot the victim," Harmer said. "After he shot him he says,'You think I was bluffing. See what you f****** get."
Prosecutors say Bodenbach admitted to detectives what had happened and claimed the victim had swung an 18-inch knife at him. However, witnesses confirmed to police that Banks didn't have a knife.
The shooting has left many at the Park Village complex in shock.
"I saw the cops and I was like 'holy cow what happened,' said Krystal Rita Esterline. "It was shocking like I've heard of things like this happening, but I didn't think it would be this close to where I'm living."
Another resident, who said he was a roommate of the victim, told us he did not know him very well. He said he was in his room with headphones on when he heard one gunshot. When he came out of his room he saw Bodenbach on the phone. It's unclear if he was the one who called 911.
The roommate says the shooting happened in the back half of the apartment building.
A judge has set Bodenbach's bond at $1 million. He is due back in court on Jan. 20 for a preliminary hearing.
