Who Is Jacob Berquist? Everything We Know About The Boise Mall Shooting Suspect

Jacob Berquist, the suspect in a shooting at a Boise mall, has been confirmed dead after being in critical condition. Let’s learn a bit more about the suspect.

Jacob Berquist was an active suspect in a shooting in the Boise, Idaho, mall that left two people dead and four more harmed. The Boise Police Department announced his death on Tuesday.

His cause of death was unknown at the time, but he died on October 26, 2021, late Tuesday morning in a hospital. It’s unclear whether Bergquist’s death was caused by a self-inflicted gunshot or whether the firearms were lawfully held.

The police team is trying to figure out why the incident happened and why it occurred in the mall.

Jacob Berquist was identified by the police as the active shooter in the Boise, Idaho, mall shooting that killed two people.

Jo Acker, a mall security guard and army veteran who was hailed as a hero, was one among the numerous casualties. Roberto Padilla Arguelles was the name of the other deceased victim.

At the Boise Town Square, a major mall, authorities recounted a chaotic situation in which the security guard and a Boise police officer confronted the suspect, and a gunfight began between the cop and the suspect.

There hasn’t been a photo of Jacob Bergquist yet, but there is a Jacob Bergquist who references Boise cops and has put videos on YouTube of himself shooting firearms and writing about guns.

In that case, investigators are attempting to determine whether he is the same guy as the shooter at the Boise mall. If such information turns out to be true, the story will be updated accordingly.
