20-year-old Kuna man died of gunshot wound to the head
BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - A young man has died following a shooting late Friday night on the Boise Bench.
Boise Police says the victim, 20-year-old Austin Tyler Blankenburg, is a relative of the suspected shooter, 23-year-old Derick Sedivy of Boise. BPD says Sedivy has been charged with involuntary manslaughter and has been in custody since the investigation started.
On Monday, the Ada County Coroner's office said Blankenburg of Kuna died of a gunshot wound to the head and his death was listed as homicide.
The shooting near S. Orchard and Cassia Streets appears accidental, BPD says, and alcohol appears to have played a role in the incident.
Sedivy was arraigned on the charges in Ada County Court and had his bond set at $50,000.
