Daughter Shoots, Kills Suspect to Save Her 70-Year-Old Mother


A woman in Bonner County, Idaho, shot and killed a suspect who was allegedly attacking her and her 70-year-old mother.

The Bonner County Daily Bee reports that police received a “disturbance call” around 5:15 pm Friday. They arrived to find the “bystanders…administering life-saving procedures on Joshua Matthew Cole of Spirit Lake.”

Deputies and EMS also tried to save 39-year-old Cole’s life but were not successful.

Details of the alleged attack are scant, but the Spokesman-Review reports that the 41-year-old daughter shot Cole with a handgun in defense of herself and her mother.

Bonner County Sheriff’s Capt. Tim Hemphill said, “Evidence and witness statements collected to this point support that claim.”
