The Marathon County Sheriff’s Department said two people are arrested and another suspect is facing charges following a burglary at Zingers and Flingers.
Investigators said around 11 p.m. Sunday, deputies responded to the indoor shooting range in Stettin for the report of a burglary in progress with “shots being fired.”
Authorities say Issac Tomek, 20 and Brock Rhode broke into the business by smashing windows. The business owner was in the back office and heard the commotion. He armed himself and responded to the entry of the business where he was confronted by the suspects. He fired several rounds from his rifle, and the suspects fled.
The business owner called 911, and when law enforcement arrived, Tomek was located a short distance away on foot and was arrested.
According to a news release, Rachel Hoeppner, 21, was found nearby driving a getaway vehicle and was also arrested. Rhode remains at large.
No injuries were reported.
Rhode is described as a white male, 5-feet 9-inches, 200 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a black hoodie, blue jeans and a black mask with neon green on it.
Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call 715-261-1200 option 1, to reach dispatch or report anonymously at marathoncounty/crimestoppers.org. Rhode is considered dangerous and may be armed.
