PASCO, WA- NBC Right Now learned that the man shot by Pasco Police on Tuesday was the same man who was rescued from a burning home by two city employees.

Joe Robles and Luke Freeman were working near that home on South 6th Street in Pasco around 8 a.m. when they heard someone trying to push down a door to get out.

Robles said somebody was, "Coughing, so we ran out of the truck to see if anybody needed help". Freeman said the two, "Looked at each other like, "What do we do?". Kinda freaked out, I guess."

Freeman pulled Zambrano-Montes up and over a parked car to get him to safety while Robles called 911.

Zambrano-Montes was taken to Lourdes Medical Center, they only thing we knew at the time is that he was expected to survive since his named was not released.

On Wednesday when we spoke to Zambrano-Montes' family they mentioned that the rental he was living in had burned down and since he has received help from the salvation army and his family.
