Idaho Shooting Victim Name Released

Posted: Updated:

MULLAN, Idaho (AP) - Officials have released the name of a Montana man who was shot and killed during a struggle over a gun with an Idaho sheriff's deputy.
   
The Kootenai County sheriff's office says 26-year-old Alexander L. Mandarino of Whitefish, Mont., died shortly after being shot along Interstate 90, just west of the Idaho-Montana state line.
   
A Shoshone County deputy responded shortly before noon Wednesday for a welfare check on the driver, whose car was parked in a turnout area. An Idaho State Police trooper arrived to assist.
   
The deputy discovered the man had a gun and as the two struggled over the weapon, the trooper shot the driver. Neither officer was hurt.
   
Both the deputy and the trooper were placed on administrative leave while the shooting is investigated.
