SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. -

KHQ.COM - A 23-year-old man was arrested Wednesday night after police say he burglarized a home in north Spokane County and fired a shot at the homeowner when confronted. 

Deputy Mark Gregory with the Spokane County Sheriff's Office told KHQ the homeowners returned to their house at around 6:00pm Wednesday and noticed their home had been burglarized. While his wife called 911, the homeowner noticed a man standing outside next to his car. The homeowner then went outside to confront the man, who pulled a gun out. As the homeowner started to run back in the house, he heard a gunshot, but was not hit. The man who fired the gun ran away carrying a backpack, a pillow case and a rifle. 

Deputies arrived and found a man matching the description the homeowner provided of the burglar walking out of the woods. That man, identified as 23-year-old Ethan Burrow was taken into custody. Burrow told the deputy that it was his partner who fired the shot, and they split up. A perimeter was set up to look for the second person involved, however after further investigation and the homeowner identifying Burrow as the man who fired the shot, deputies believe Burrow acted alone. 

Inside the residence, the homeowner said there were several items missing, including cash, checks, and a .22 caliber rifle. 

Burrow was booked on Burglary, Assault, Theft of a Firearm, and two counts of Theft of a Motor Vehicle.
