On Thursday, June 4th, 2020 at approximately 0055
hours, Nampa Police received a report of a domestic violence incident that
occurred at a residence on Zion Park Dr. The victim reported to police that
during the incident, she had been threatened with a gun. Officers attempted to
make contact with the suspect, James W. Furrer, a 32-year-old Nampa resident,
however he would not communicate with police.
Since it was unclear why Furrer wouldn’t communicate with officers and due to the severity of the crime, the Nampa Police Tactical Response Team was called in. After repeated attempts to contact Furrer, he finally exited the residence and was taken into custody without incident.
Detectives responded to assist with the investigation. Upon
completion of their investigation, Furrer was charged with
18-918 Felony Domestic Battery
18-923 Felony Attempted strangulation
18-905 Felony Aggravated assault
