PEND OREILLE COUNTY, Wash. -

UPDATE: Tuesday May 10, 2016 12:30 p.m.

The Bonner County Sheriff's Office has identified the suspect who shot at one of their deputy's patrol cars Monday night as 27-year-old Patrick Geaudreau of Oldtown,Idaho. 

The Sheriff's Office says just after 11:00 p.m. deputies tried to stop a marooon Jeep Grand Cherokee on Tweedie Road off of Highway 41. The driver did not stop and a pursuit ensued. The driver crossed over into Washington and the passenger was identified as Geaudreau by a pursuing deputy. The Sheriff's Office says Geaudreau opened fire at a pursuing deputy and hit the deputy's patrol car. The shots immediately disabled the deputy's car, but the deputy was not hit. 

The Jeep then crashed through a fence, traveled through a field and became stuck in a creek bed. The two occupants then fled on foot. 

After an all-night search that included agencies from Washington, Idaho and Montana, the suspects were not located. 

The crime scene is being investigated by the Pend Oreille County Sheriff's Office, with assistance from the Washington State Patrol. Criminal charges will be filed in both Washington and Idaho. 

While both suspects are still at large, only Patrick Geaudreau has been positively identified. Both suspects should be considered armed and dangerous. 

If you see Geaudreau or anything suspicious, you are asked to call 911.
