UPDATED: Meridian Police Officer Identified, Recovering at Home After Sunday Shooting

Boise (670 KBOI News) – The Meridian police officer who was shot serving a warrant Sunday is recovering from two gunshot wounds to his legs.

Meridian Deputy Police Chief Tracy Basterrechea says the good new is…Officer Kyle Mikowski out of the hospital.

“He was just released from the hospital, and he is at home, recovering with his family,” said Basterrechea.  “We know the community would like to recognize him for his bravery and sacrifice, but we just ask that everybody respect his privacy right now.”

One of the other two people who were in the Dodge Durango when the shooting happened turned himself in on an unrelated warrant.   Basterrechea says he’s being treated as a witness at this time, not a suspect.

Police are still looking for a third person who ran from the scene.  She’s described only as a Hispanic woman, but Basterrechea says they’re narrowing down the suspect list.

I have a sister-in-law named Tami who lives in Tennessee.  She graduated from Oklahoma State University in the 1980’s, and this is why Boise State, my alma mater, must defeat Oklahoma State this weekend in football.  It’s not going to be the easiest thing to do, I’m guessing.  Oklahoma State is a member of the…

Beat the Cowboys!

  I’m going to make this short and sweet. Boise State has to knock off a couple of Cowboys in order for this to be a HISTORIC season for the Broncos. Boise State is currently ranked by the AP at #17 in the country. With a win over Oklahoma State on Saturday (if they win)…

What’s in a name?

I thought I was original.  Not quite, though.  On Saturday, the Boise State Broncos play the University of Connecticut Huskies at Albertson’s Stadium.  It’s a late game.  Kickoff isn’t until 8:15pm. I generally refer to the team as “Connecticut”.  A lot of other people call it “UConn”.  I’m not a huge fan of nicknames, cliches…
