SKYWAY, Wash -- King County Sheriff’s detectives are asking for the public’s help to find two burglary suspects after they say one of them shot at a deputy in Skyway around 11 p.m. Tuesday.

"The homeowner wasn't home but had a good surveillance system and was actually watching the suspects break into the house on his phone,” said King County Sgt. Cindi West.

That homeowner called 911 as he watched the two suspects identified by investigators as Cobbe Rian Weston and Luther Dandre Jenkins burglarizing his house. Deputies responded and a chase ensued. At one point, detectives say one of the suspects turned and fired a shot from 15 feet away but missed.

“The deputy said in his report that he was shocked that he didn't get hit. He said he was standing 5 to 6 yards from our suspects when he pulled the trigger. He said he saw the muzzle flash, heard the shot, smelled the gunpowder and he couldn't believe that he wasn't hit,” said Sgt. West.

Both suspects escaped.

“These guys are bad guys. They both are on Department of Corrections supervision for the same types of burglaries and we want to get them off the streets,” said Sgt. West.
