Update #2 11-05-18 On October 29, 2018, at approximately 12:19 a.m., Shoshone County Deputies John Richter and Jake Delaney responded to a report of suspicious activity in the area of F St. and Washington St. in the City Smelterville, Idaho. Upon arrival, deputies located a 38 year old male inside a motorhome, which did not belong to him, parked on the property of Nickerson’s Towing. While the deputies detained the male, another man exited a van parked nearby and began firing in the direction of the deputies. Deputies returned fire, taking action to safely keep the detainee out of the line of fire. The shooter, later identified as 80 year old Richard B. Willoughby Jr., was wounded three times in the exchange of gun fire. Deputies rendered first aid to Willoughby who was subsequently transported for further medical treatment. He was later declared to be in stable condition the morning of the incident. The detained male was unharmed, and was cited and released on scene for unlawful entry. Neither deputy was injured in the shooting and are currently on administrative leave per department protocol pending investigation.
