Local man killed in Idaho shootout

RIGGINS, Idaho (AP) - Idaho officials say a 47-year-old man wanted in El Paso County is dead and a deputy sheriff was injured during a shootout.

County Commissioner Jim Rehder says Curtis Scrivner was killed in a gun battle with the unnamed deputy at about 7:30 a.m. about five miles east of Riggins. Rehder says the deputy was shot in the abdomen and ankle and was taken by ambulance to a hospital in McCall.

Scrivner was contacted by Riggins Deputy Jonny Wilson on Tuesday for failure to appear on a felony warrant from El Paso County, Colo.

At that time, Scrivner reportedly displayed a firearm and fled from Wilson.

Additional law enforcement backup was summoned because Scrivner had made previous threats to officers. Details of how and when Scrivner died have not been released.
