(FORT HALL, ID) – A Fort Hall man remains in a Utah hospital after being shot by a Bannock County Sheriff’s Deputy. The shooting happened last Wednesday night following a high speed chase. 33-year-old Kevin Toane is accused of using his vehicle to ram patrol cars from Bannock County and Fort Hall. The chase began after Toane was allegedly involved in a hit-and-run in the Tyhee area. Fearing that Toane posed a significant danger to the public, an officer opened fire on the suspect. He was immediately taken to Portneuf Medical Center, and was later airlifted to the University of Utah Medical Center in Salt Lake City.
