18-year-old Korey Zivotin and 30-year-old Marshall Austin were arrested just days after the robbery and arrested.

The suspects allegedly forced their way into the home through a side door and fired a shot at Paige who returned shots.

No one was injured in the shooting and the suspects fled the area before law enforcement arrived.

All three men are charged with first-degree robbery and Johnson is also charged with second-degree fleeing or evading police and possession of meth.
