Fourth of July shooter Tyler Rambo sentenced to 10 years

COEUR d’ALENE, Idaho — Nearly two years after the Fourth of July shooting in Coeur d’Alene, Tyler Rambo has been sentenced to ten years in prison.

Kootenai County Judge Cynthia Meyer delivered the sentence Wednesday. Rambo will spend at least five years of that sentence behind bars.

The jury found Rambo guilty on three counts of aggravated assault of an officer in March.

Rambo brought a loaded gun to the park that night, got into a fight and the gun went off. That led to panic in the crowd or thousands who gathered to watch the fireworks in Coeur d’Alene’s City Park.

Coeur d’Alene Police shot Rambo, who had to have both legs amputated as a result.

“There is no question that you have been punished tremendously… the loss of your limbs… It’s a tragedy and it’s a terrible loss,” said Meyer. “You have been punished, but it’s time to work on the other pieces.”
