Hailey police reported Wednesday that a Hailey man who was shot in the abdomen during a dispute the evening of July 13 has now been released from Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise.
“He’s still in the Boise area, but he’s out of the hospital,” said Hailey Police Chief Jeff Gunter. “We interviewed him once but we’re trying to interview him again.”
Gunter was referring to 29-year-old Anthony Parsons, who police reported was shot while beating up on the man who allegedly shot him, 30-year-old Adam Keith Boyd, also of Hailey.
Boyd meanwhile remains incarcerated in the Blaine County jail on $75,000 bond. He is charged with the felony crime of aggravated battery.
The Roark Law Firm has been appointed public defender for Boyd. A preliminary hearing is now scheduled for 9 a.m. on Aug. 7.
Assistant Police Chief Dave Stellers reported in a probable-cause affidavit that Parsons was shot with a .40 FNX automatic pistol in a confrontation near the Subway sandwich shop on Main Street. Stellers further reported that before being shot that Parsons followed Boyd to his vehicle, “threw him into the car head first,” knocking him down, and that Parsons continued kicking Boyd while Boyd was on the ground. At that point, Boyd allegedly shot Parsons.
Gunter reported Wednesday that the shooting still remains under investigation. Police initially reported that they believe the men were arguing over money.
