Boise police have released the names of the officers involved in a fatal shootout with an armed individual in the North End of Boise. The officers, identified as Sgts. Jason Pietrzak and Kirk Rush, and Officers Ryan Pollard, Chase Fiddler, Dominic Rogers, and Craig Sousa, were responsible for the shooting of Macy Juker, a 28-year-old suspect, at the intersection of 19th and Washington streets. The incident occurred after reports of gunfire on July 26. The officers were engaged in gunfire upon arrival and subsequently killed the suspect. The Ada County coroner later confirmed the suspect’s identity as Juker. As per standard procedure for police shootings in Idaho, the officers have been placed on administrative leave while the Critical Incident Task Force investigates the incident, led by the Garden City Police Department. This marks the fourth fatal shooting by Boise police this year, an unprecedented number for the department. In addition to the officers’ last names and first initials provided in the release, their first names were identified through a sworn officers list. Notably, Sgt. Kirk Rush, who joined the department in 2004, has been involved in three shootings since last year. He was one of the officers involved in the shooting of Jake Cottrell in June 2022 and also shot Harry Andrews in January. Cottrell, a suspect in two shootings in Boise and Meridian, was killed after firing at officers on Broadway Ave following a car theft. Rush shot Andrews on the Interstate 184 connector after Andrews refused to follow commands and produced a weapon. Furthermore, Rush has alleged in a tort claim that former Boise Police Chief Ryan Lee broke his neck during a morning briefing in October 2021.
