Idaho Governor Butch Otter is asking Idahoan’s to take a few minutes at 1 p.m. Wednesday to reflect on the three people killed and one injured by a gunman over the weekend.
29 year old John Lee is accused of shooting his adoptive mother, Terri Grzebielski, at her home in Moscow on Saturday. Police said he then headed to a Northwestern Mutual life insurance office, where his landlord, David Trail, was shot. Lee is also accused of shooting and wounding Michael Chin of Seattle. Police say the shooter then drove to an Arby's restaurant and shot manager Belinda Niebuhr who died at a hospital.
Otter said “I ask that all Idahoans observe a moment of silence ... to let our friends and families in Moscow know they are in our thoughts and prayers, and that they are not alone in their grief, It is important that everyone in Idaho take time in the wake of this horrendous act to remember those who have lost their lives and offer our support to the families, friends, and Moscow community as they mourn this tragedy."
Lee, who was captured following a chase in Whitman County, Wash., made his first court appearance Monday and was advised of his rights.
