According to a report, police officers arrested Peter Thomas Kuyper, 36, at around 2 a.m. on Wednesday following hours of a standoff at an RV Park in Idaho‘s Boise City near the airport.

Police from different agencies across the Treasure Valley responded to the gunfight close to Boise Airport.

According to the Ada County Sheriff’s Office authorities, police received a report of a male in a Chevy truck shooting at another vehicle around 9:30 p.m. MT on Wednesday. The gunfires happened near the Meridian overpass along Interstate 84.

The police then located the truck. After a quick chase, they claim Kuyper was able to get out of the vehicle near the Mountain View RV Park on Airport Way in Boise and shot at the officers. The shot didn’t hit or hurt any officers.

Officials claim Kuyper hit an RV and refused to go out for many hours.

Police surrounded the RV and talked with Kuyper to let him come out peacefully.

Police also closed Interstate 84 in both directions between Federal Way and Vista Avenue as they worked in that area to break up the standoff.
