Police Now Say Shooting In Which A Man Was Arrested May Have Been Self-Defense, Still Faces Charges

BOISE, IDAHO — The Ada County Prosecutor’s Office have dropped a murder charge against a 26-year-old Boise man, now believing the shooting was in self defense, according to Boise Police.

A Boise man, identified as 26-year-old Zackary Gordan, was arrested on October 21 and charged with the second-degree murder of 32-year-old Robert Nicholas.

On October 20, Nicholas showed up to the Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise with a gunshot wound.

According to authorities, Nicholas died from a gunshot wound to the chest and Gordan was charged with his murder.

After extensive investigation, the DA’s office now believes that shooting was in self defense.

According to police, they believe Gordan got into a verbal argument with Nicholas.

Authorities said Gordan and Nicholas knew each other. The two were together in a home when the argument started. Police believe that the dispute led to the shooting.

The murder charge has been dropped, however, as of Dec. 2 Gordan still has multiple charges pending, including concealment of evidence, possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver and three counts of possession of a controlled substance.

Not the best look for Gordan.
