Two Separate Gang-Related Shootings in Nampa, 

One Injured, One Deceased 


On April 17, 2023, at 1:35 a.m., Nampa Dispatch received a 911 call reporting someone had possibly been shot in the 16000 block of N. White Pine St. Callers indicated the person who did the shooting was in a vehicle that was traveling through the trailer park. Upon arrival, an adult male was located with a gunshot injury to the buttocks and genitalia. We do not currently have any suspects in this incident and the investigation is ongoing. 


While officers were in the area investigating the shooting, at approximately 1:54 a.m., a second shooting occurred nearby, in the same trailer park, in the 16000 block of Grand Pine Way. 


Upon arrival on Grand Pine Way, officers located an adult male who was the victim of a gunshot. Life saving measures were administered on scene, however the victim succumbed to his injuries. 


In reference to the second shooting on Grand Pine Way, we have a juvenile male in custody. His identify is not being released because he is a juvenile. 


The victim of the fatal second shooting has been identified as 26-year-old Jacob Aguiniga of Nampa. 


Both shooting incidents are gang related, and it appears all parties involved are gang affiliated. 


“Overnight, our community suffered the senseless loss of a young man, and the life altering injuries to another. There is absolutely no purpose to this kind of violence, and we will work hard, with our neighboring agencies, to stop these crimes in our area,” said Chief Joe Huff. “We have a zero tolerance for gang activity and gang violence of any kind in Nampa and Nampa PD will pursue these crimes to the fullest of our abilities. Thank you to the Caldwell Police Department, Canyon County Sheriff’s Office and Idaho State Police for their partnerships and their assistance with extra resources last night.”
