The Ada County coroner identified the victim of a fatal Nov. 6 shooting Luis Lara, 38.

Lara, who Coroner Dottie Owens confirmed died of multiple gunshot wounds, was killed following a road rage incident that began on Five Mile Road. When Lara and alleged shooter Jacob Wall, 21, exited their vehicles, prosecutors said, Lara started "swinging punches." That's when, according to investigators, Wall shot Lara with a Glock 21 handgun. A fight reportedly ensued and Wall shot Lara three more times.

During his court arraignment, Wall was ordered held on $1 million bond. He is due back in court on Monday, Nov. 21.
