TWIN FALLS, Idaho -

During an attempted drug trafficking arrest, Idaho State Police say a man took a shot at a responding trooper. 

It happened at about 3 a.m. Saturday morning in the Walmart parking lot in Twin Falls, Idaho. Police attempted to arrest two people suspected of trafficking drugs. The suspects were identified as 24-year-old Bonafacio Carlos Taffola and 26-year-old Arcenio Sosa Solorio. Both are Mexican nationals who authorities believe have most recently lived in the Twin Falls area.

During the attempted arrest, one of the men pulled a pistol and shot at one of the ISP troopers on scene. Police say only one shot was fired and no one was hit or injured. One of the men attempted to take off on foot, but was quickly taken into custody. Both suspects have been booked into the Twin Falls County Jail.

During a search of the car, police found 38 lbs of marijuana, two grams of meth and paraphernalia. The approximate value of the drugs is $75,000.

The Twin Falls Police Department continues to investigate.
