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.

UPDATE: SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. - Spokane County Sheriffs Deputies have stopped looking for a 2nd suspect in a burglary that happened Wednesday evening in Peone Prairie. Deputies believe the man they caught Wednesday was the sole burglar.

According to Deputy Mark Gregory, deputies searched into the night for the supposed 2nd burglar, but are confident Thursday morning that there was only one suspect involved in that burglary and manhunt.

The victims were very overwhelmed Wednesday night and were not sure if there were one or two suspects in their home. The man deputies captured made comments that made it seem like he was not acting alone.

After investigating however, deputies now believe the man they captured was the only suspect involved.

The suspect in custody is a 23-year-old male. He is being charged with 1st degree assault, 1st degree burglary, unlawful possession of a firearm and possession of a stolen vehicle.

A Spokane County Sheriff's deputy tells us that the burglars stole a gun from the home, and as they were running away one of them fired a .22 caliber rifle stolen during the burglary. Fortunately, no one was hit.

Sheriff's deputies were able to arrest one of the burglars, but another is outstanding. The man at large is believed to be the one who fired the weapon.
