Washoe County Sheriff's deputies continue the search for three people involved in a residential armed robbery. They may be driving a black sedan last reported seen at the victim's home in Cold Springs, in the area of Aquamarine and Jutewood, and they are believed to have left the Cold Springs area.

Deputies say evidence indicates one of the robbers may have been shot by the homeowner, though no injuries have been reported.

No descriptions of the robbers have been released.

The incident began about 4AM Thursday, May 16, 2019, when deputies responded to a robbery in progress.

Residents in the area were briefly advised to shelter in place, but deputies don't believe there is still a threat to the public. They say this appears to be an isolated incident.

Anyone who knows of the robbers' whereabouts or has information that may assist this investigation is asked to call the Washoe County Sheriff's Office at (775) 328-3320 or Secret Witness at (775) 322-4900.
