34-year old McCoy was arrested at approximately 9:15 p.m. (cdst) by officers with the Idaho State Police and the Lewiston Police Department.

McCoy was arrested without incident.

McCoy faces three counts of first degree murder for the shooting deaths of 55 year old Christine Colston, 50 year old Willie Ray Young and 17-year old Gregory Colston
