RENO, NV - A convoluted shooting case has kept Reno police busy since early Friday, and an ever-changing story has turned into a case of an elderly homeowner shooting two men over several hours.

Police say around 3:30am Friday, they were called to Virginia and Artemesia Streets, told of a man with several gunshot wounds.

He was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Police say that man, Jonathan Rogers, is one of three men who broke into a home on Bartlett Street, on the other side of the UNR campus. They believe the homeowner shot Rogers, who ran through the campus and onto Virginia Street, where he collapsed.

The second suspect, Guy Ruiz, also ran off, apparently not hurt, and is still on the loose.

The third suspect, Robert Marin, was apparently held at gunpoint by the homeowner for several hours. Police say the homeowner was somehow injured over the course of the incident and was unable to call police or go for help. After several hours, the two men fought and the homeowner shot Marin, giving the homeowner a chance to call police.

Rogers remains in an area hospital in critical condition, Ruiz is still on the loose, and Marin is being treated for his wound.

The homeowner's name hasn't been released.

Anyone who locates Ruiz is urged to call the Reno Police Department Dispatch at 334-2121.

Anyone with further information about the case is requested to call:
Reno Police Department - Detective Division 334-2115
Secret Witness - 322-4900.
