Heyburn Man Looking For Answers After Drive-By Shooting
Heyburn, Idaho (KMVT-TV) A Heyburn man is looking for answers after a drive–by shooting.
The incident happened at 1:30 Saturday morning on 400 South, just outside of Heyburn.
Rudy Castro was sleeping at the time, but awoke to hearing four rounds of gun shots. The bullets hit the home and car.
Castro says one of the bullets narrowly missed his head by six inches.
Rudy's wife was at home at the time of the shooting.
He says Minidoka County Sheriff's Office recovered a nine millimeter bullet from the wall.
Castro is uncertain of who did this and what was their motive.
"I just reached for my gun right away and I was out there in seconds and I heard the car drive down the road and I heard them shoot down the road about a quarter mile away. And I came back to see if my wife was hurt," says Castro.
Fortunately, she wasn't. Castro has a surveillance camera attached to his home and the footage shows the suspected car as an older model, light-colored Buick.
Anyone that has information is urged to call Minidoka County Sheriff's Office or Crimestoppers.
Castro is offering a $1,000 for the arrest and conviction of the suspect or suspects.
