UPDATE- The suspects from Carlin have been identified as 38-year-old Jake Rowe. Rowe is being hospitalized in Boise with a single gunshot wound to the stomach from a Carlin Police officer.

The female suspect is 36-year-old Linda Rowe, jailed on a $500,000 federal warrant.

The arrest and apprehension are connected to warrants from a July 2013 bank robbery in Twin Falls, Idaho.

CARLIN, Nev. (KENV & MyNews4.com) -- A Carlin man suspected of robbing a Twin Falls bank earlier today was shot and wounded by Elko authorities who chased the suspect into a ravine outside of Carlin around 2:30pm today.

According to Elko County Undersheriff Clair Morris, the suspect, who has not been identified, was initially pursued from Idaho. Carlin & Elko Police, along with Nevada Highway Patrol and Sheriff's Deputies rousted him from a home in Carlin. Also at the home, a female accomplice who was said to be the girlfriend of the suspect was arrested.

The suspect apparently armed himself with an AR, a handgun, two knives and additional ammo before talking off in a Toyota 4 Runner. The vehicle became disabled on a dirt road some 20 miles outside of Carlin in an area known as Swale Mountain. A confrontation resulted in three or four shots fired. Morris says the suspect was wounded in the abdomen and has been flown to the hospital in Elko.

Morris says he does not know whether the suspect fired on police, but says he did point a weapon toward officers. No officers were hurt.
