ID: Home Invasion in Idaho Falls, 1 Victim Killed, 1 Victim Wounded, Invader Suspect Wounded

The reporting party said a person had entered the residence, and two people had been shot. When police arrived, they found two men with gunshot wounds and the victims were taken to a local hospital, where one died from the injury.

The Bonneville County Coroner’s Office has identified the individual who died from the shooting as Eric Leask, 51, of Idaho Falls.

Idaho Falls police, after 11 p.m. Saturday, located the suspect in an apartment unit at the Teton Mesa Apartments, 800 block of Lomax Street. The suspect, later identified as Broncho, barricaded himself in the apartment and did not come out when officers directed him to do so.

The Idaho Falls police SWAT team was called to evacuate neighbors and sent in tear gas into the apartment unit around 1 a.m. Sunday. Broncho exited the apartment and was taken into custody. A second person, Blanca Lopez, was taken into custody after 3 a.m. for pre-existing Bonneville County warrants.
