Samari Winn, 34, is charged with two counts of aiding and abetting murder and one count of aiding and abetting attempted murder.

Boise police are still looking for a suspect in connection with a South Boise shooting while details are beginning to emerge surrounding the triple shooting and double homicide.

Boise Police were called to the 2100 block of South Orchard Street in the late hours of May 8. That's when they found three people shot. Two of the victims, 28-year-old Elliot Bailey and 27-year-old Travontae Calloway died of multiple gunshot wounds at Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise. A third victim, a female, was seriously wounded.

On May 9, police booked 34-year-old Samari Winn into the Ada County Jail in connection with the shootings. But during Winn's May 12 arraignment, court documents revealed that Winn did not pull the trigger of the gun, but instead led the gunman to the Orchard Street home. Winn is now charged with two counts of aiding and abetting murder and one count of aiding and abetting the attempted murder of the female victim.

Winn was ordered held without bail.

Police say the the crime was an isolated incident and that the people involved all knew one another.

Meanwhile, law enforcement also said finding the second suspect remains a top priority.
