Man making threats forces evacuation of Boise Fred Meyer


Boise police say they were called to the Fred Meyer store in the 3500 block of Federal Way due to a man in a bathroom who was yelling at people to stay back and claimed to have a gun.

Officers made contact with the suspect, and evacuated the store while they communicated with the suspect who was initially uncooperative.

The suspect is identified as 28-year-old Andrew Middleton of Boise.

A short time later, police were able to take Middleton into custody and secure the scene. Police say the man did not have a weapon.

Middleton was booked into Ada County Jail, charged with FTA Warrant (F), providing false information to police (m), and disturbing the peace (m).
