The prosecutor investigating the death of a Caldwell man shot by a Boise police officer back in June says Officer Rob Rainford’s actions were justified. Fifty-year-old Noel Rodriguez was shot in the early morning hours of June 14th on Brynwood Drive — just a few blocks away from Capital High School. Twin Falls County Prosecutor Grant Loebs reviewed the Critical Incident Task Force investigation and his findings were released Friday afternoon.
According to the incident summary, Boise police had responded to a citizen report about a suspected drunk driver. They contacted Rodriguez, who police say attacked officers with his pickup and had armed himself with a screwdriver and a wrench. Loebs has concluded that Rodriguez made himself a clear and immediate danger to law enforcement officers and the general public. Two police officers were wearing body cameras that night and recorded video of the incident.
