Two Bonner County sheriff’s deputies were shot while trying to arrest a man Monday morning at a home in Blanchard, Idaho.
Both deputies were shot three times, but their injuries were not life-threatening, Coeur d’Alene police Detective Jared Reneau said. The deputies were in surgery as of Monday afternoon and are expected to recover.
The deputies were shot around 11:30 a.m. while trying to arrest a man with a warrant, Reneau said. They were transported to Kootenai Health for treatment of their injuries.
The suspect in the home was also shot, Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Detective Dennis Stinebaugh said. Stinebaugh wouldn’t say whether the man was shot by the deputies or if his injury was self-inflicted. The suspect was also taken to Kootenai Health, where he was still in surgery as of 4 p.m.
The names of the deputies involved and the suspect were not released Monday.
