Dennis Mulqueen Obituary – The identity of the man responsible for fatally shooting an Ada County sheriff’s deputy has been released by the Ada County Coroner’s Office. Dennis Mulqueen, a 65-year-old resident of Boise, died from a gunshot wound to the chest at Saint Alphonsus hospital early Sunday morning.

According to the police, Mulqueen shot Deputy Tobin Bolter on Saturday night in Boise. Bolter succumbed to his injuries at the hospital the following morning. The incident occurred when Deputy Bolter had pulled over a vehicle near West Overland Road and North Raymond Street on April 20, just before 9 p.m. The suspect in the vehicle shot the deputy in the neck and fled the scene.

A witness immediately called 911 upon witnessing the shooting and proceeded to administer CPR to Deputy Bolter. The injured deputy was then transported to Saint Alphonsus hospital for medical treatment.

The suspect’s vehicle was later discovered near South Dorian and West Roosevelt streets around 9:30 p.m., but no one was found inside.

During a confrontation with officers in the vicinity, Mulqueen was shot and killed. Although he had a $3,000 warrant for his arrest, the police stated that they are unaware of the motive behind his attack on the deputy. Mulqueen was found to have a handgun.

Law enforcement officers eventually located the suspect outside a residence on South Jackson Street and attempted to persuade him to surrender. As a precautionary measure, a Code Red alert was issued to residents in the area, and officers personally notified neighbors as well. Shortly after midnight, the suspect opened fire on the officers, prompting a Boise police officer to return fire and shoot him. The suspect was transported to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
