Police in Twin Falls Have Filed Charges Against 2 Men After Recent Homicide
Last week in Twin Falls there were 2 separate shooting incidents. In one, in the parking lot of Target, a man was injured and went to the hospital - in the other, a man was shot and killed outside his home. A release from the City of Twin Falls last week gave the impression to many that the shootings while being separate were linked.
In a new press release today, police have verified that the shootings were linked and have filed charges against 2 men in the homicide case.
