COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho. - Two suspects in a Monday night burglary, during which one was shot, are now in police custody. Jake Smith, 18, turned himself into police Tuesday night just before 8. Already in custody was 24-year-old Shae Crump who was shot in the arm by the homeowner during the alleged burglary. Crump was arrested after police learned he had been taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound.

Police are still searching for a third suspect, 29-year-old Eli Skalak.

A 76-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.

"I didn't have time to get scared," says the man who wishes to remain unidentified, "but I probably was scared when I seen him... I just started shooting, the only way I could get him away from me."

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.
