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 this around 5:30 pm. 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 described as a girlfriend 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 to four shots fired; the suspect was wounded in the abdomen and was flown to a hospital in Elko. The undersheriff did not know whether the suspect fired on police but says he did point a weapon toward officers. No officers were hurt. No word yet on the name and condition of suspect.
