COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho. - According to the Coeur d'Alene Police, charges are pending against one burglary suspect and two others remain on the loose following a Coeur d'Alene burglary late Monday night.

A 74-year-old man told police that his dog jumped onto his bed and woke him up before midnight Monday. He said his dog was shaking so he knew something was wrong. The man grabbed his pistol and made his way the kitchen area of his home where he discovered his sliding glass door open and two men standing just outside.

The man says he yelled at the men standing outside and they turned as if they were going to enter his home. He then fired his pistol, striking one of the suspects in the arm.

The men both fled and that's when the man called police. Police arrived on scene and began searching for the suspects when they were notified that a man had just gone into the emergency room at Kootenai Medical center with a gunshot wound.

Detectives investigating the case determine there were actually three suspects.

The man who was shot has been identified as 24-year-old Shae Crump. He has charges pending for burglary.

There is probable cause to arrest 18-year-old Jake Smith and 29-year-old Eli Skalak. Both of these suspects are still on the loose.

 Detectives are currently obtaining warrants for their arrest.
