The circumstances surrounding the homicides in Boise Sunday evening remain unclear, and it's possible that no arrests will be made in the case, City Police Chief Todd Carver said at a midday press conference Monday.

Carson Sterling-Plummer, the mother of a child, was rushed to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries after the shooting, but died Monday morning, Carver said. A 22-year-old man was also transported to the hospital and later pronounced dead, and the fatal shooting in Silliman Park appears to have been isolated and resulted from "a minor disturbance," he said.

"There's no indication that any of these individuals or groups were involved in a shooting contest or competitive group activity," Carver said.

The women had been attending the Happy Go Lucky Oatmeal pop-up café in Silliman Park just before 10 p.m. Saturday when the shooting started, Boise Police said Monday. Carver said that the pair weren't explicitly targeted during the disturbance. The shooting at night is common in Boise, but the place where it happened this weekend drew public attention because it occurred in Silliman Park, a neighborhood predominantly populated by minority residents. Silliman Park sits on southside Boise in Boise, Idaho.

 Idaho, Lester, 26, was arrested Sunday night and charged with two counts of murder, Carver said. He also faces a disorderly conduct charge, according to jail records.

An Idaho state police Critical Incident Response Team responded to the shooting and described the scene as "very busy," Carver said.

Lester told officers that he and a fellow man had been drinking prior to the shooting and that they drove to Silliman Park to have a "fun day out with some friends," Boise police said.

In addition to being charged with murder, Lester was charged with two counts of interference with emergency services and a charge for DUI on July 2, the police said. The charges were filed on behalf of the Boise Regional District Attorney's Office after authorities were prompted to get the reports from public safety and other personnel at the scene, Carver said.

Lester had been taken into custody after the shooting, but he remained hospitalized Sunday afternoon, after being treated for a gunshot wound to the chest, according to the police.

Lester is a convicted felon who recently was transferred from Texas, according to the police. He was brought to the Boise Police Department's Northwest Detention Center from the hospital early Monday, and at his arraignment, a judge denied bond and remanded Lester into custody, Carver said.

Lester is expected to appear in court again on Dec.Gus Moranda of K2TV in Boise contributed to this report.

 Boise, Idaho, shooting leaves 2 dead; suspect arrested,

No less than two individuals are dead and five others — including a cop — are harmed after a shopping center shooting Monday in Boise, Idaho, specialists said. 

At a news meeting, Boise Police Boss Ryan Lee said officials reacted to a report of shots discharged at Boise Towne Square shopping center at around 1:50 p.m. The shopping center is situated in Idaho's biggest city and is the city's biggest shopping center. 

At the point when police showed up, specialists say they saw somebody who coordinated with the portrayal of a suspect. A trade of gunfire followed, which prompted one cop to be harmed, as indicated by Lee. 

Lee said a suspect is in guardianship and accepts there was just a single shooter. 

The suspect is in basic condition, and the official was dealt with and delivered by Boise police. Specialists haven't distinguished a rationale in the shooting."We truly can't as of now address any inspiration driving it," Lee said, calling any theory untimely. 

Andi Petersen, 25, was visiting a companion who worked at the shopping center with her sweetheart. She passed on through the Macy's passageway to place a few packs in her vehicle. Seconds after the fact, she heard shots discharged inside the shopping center. My sweetheart, who's from the nation, knew immediately." 

Petersen and her sweetheart ran about a large portion of a square to a Halloween store close by and caught wind of 10 to 15 additional discharges from inside the shopping center. They, alongside the Halloween store representatives, locked themselves inside for about an hour prior to the police saying they could leave. 

Petersen additionally caught wind of six discharges not too far off, outside the shopping center.
