BOISE (Idaho Statesman) — Boise police have named the two men accused of shooting and killing an Ada County man near the Boise State University campus late Monday night.
The two arrested are 23-year-old Eagle man Devoune Mosley and 22-year-old Boise man Matthew Crawford, according to an updated news release from the Boise Police Department. Both were booked into the Ada County Jail early Tuesday morning just after midnight, according to online booking reports.
Crawford and Mosley are being held in jail on first-degree murder charges. Mosley is also facing a count of unlawful possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
The Ada County Coroner’s Office identified the deceased man Tuesday afternoon as 24-year-old Guy Lopez II, a Boise resident. The coroner’s office found that Lopez died from multiple gunshot wounds, and his manner of death was homicide.
Mosley and Crawford allegedly met Lopez on a sidewalk in the 1400 block of Chrisway Drive with the intention of robbing him, according to police. During the attempted robbery, police allege that Crawford “fired several rounds” and struck Lopez with bullets multiple times.
Lopez was later found and taken to the Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise, where he died just before midnight on Monday.
Police did not say what type of firearm was used in the homicide, but Mosley allegedly told investigators after his arrest that he was in possession of a shotgun, which is not allowed due to a prior felony conviction.
The shooting was reported to police around 11:30 p.m. Monday night. The homicide set off a shelter-in-place order from the university, as the shooting took place just feet from the campus.
