COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) An Idaho police department has placed eight officers on paid leave after the shooting of 18-year-old man that followed an Idaho Fourth of July fireworks display.

Coeur d'Alene officers shot Tyler Rambo more than 10 times in a city park after police said he refused to drop his gun and fired once at them, the Coeur d'Alene Press reported Friday.

Rambo was taken to a hospital in critical condition. Officials did not give an update on his condition.

His grandmother, Karri Putnam, posted on Facebook this week that Rambo is improving.

"Tyler is getting stronger every day," Putnam wrote.

Officers had followed Rambo after responding to a report that he had fired a gun at someone, police said. Officers asked him repeatedly to drop the firearm, and they tried to use a stun gun on him before the shooting, police said.

Justin Bangs, Jacob Brazle, Kyle Cannon, Matthew Edward, Ryan Germain, Nathan Herbig, Jacob Proctor and Casey Ziegler were placed on leave, which is standard procedure in shootings involving officers.

Idaho State Police is investigating the shooting.
