On November 16, 2023, at approximately 1:47 am the Twin Falls Police Department responded to the 800 block of Capri Dr. in regard to a reported shooting. It was reported that a home owner heard a disturbance outside his house and confronted an individual inside of his vehicle. Our officers arrived and discovered that the home owner had been shot while confronting the suspect inside his vehicle. It was reported that the suspect then fled the scene, got into a white truck and left the area at a high rate of speed. Although first aid was rendered by first responders, the 32-year old victim died as a result of the shooting and this case is currently being treated as a homicide investigation. The victim has been identified as Fred Rodriquez of Twin Falls. Rodriquez was married and a father to three children.
