The Reno Police Department released new details into a shooting and house fire in the 900 block of Bates Avenue early Monday morning.

The incident was reported just before 3AM on February 10, 2020.

Investigators say two juveniles, broke into an addition off the main house, looking for a 14-year-old who lives at the home. They were confronted by an adult who was armed with a gun. Investigators say one of the suspects pointed a gun at the adult, and the adult opened fire, shooting both suspects.

One suspect was found at the scene. He was taken to a hospital in critical condition. The other suspect left the scene, but checked into a hospital after getting shot in the leg. He was later arrested.

Part of the home also caught fire. It's unclear how the fire started.

Investigators say two days prior to the shooting, the same suspects had broken into the home and beat up the 14-year-old who lives there. Police also say the suspects had threatened to return.

The names of the suspects involved are not being released at this time.
