Police: Caldwell woman made up drive-by shooting story

By  | 

CALDWELL, Idaho (AP) Police say a Caldwell woman invented a story of a drive-by shooting to conceal that she was actually shot in her home.

The Idaho Statesman reports that 49-year-old Aurora Quedaza told investigators she was shot in the shoulder while walking her dog last week by a suspect in a red vehicle.

Caldwell police say the evidence doesn't bear that out, but instead shows that she was shot in her home. Authorities say she has not cooperated in identifying the person who actually shot her or why.

The department says it intends to seek charges against her for filing a false police report. Officers spent hours looking for the purported drive-by shooter.
