A suspect involved in a Sunday evening shooting is being sought by the Bonner County Sheriff's Office.

BCSO officials said that Arthur Neal Leen of Priest River was shot after an unknown male asked to use the family's phone. Leen was treated for his injuries and transported to Newport Hospital and later Providence Sacred Heart with non-life-threatening injuries.

The suspect is described as a white male, between 35-40 years old. He was wearing a white tank top, shorts and a baseball cap. He was driving a primer grey, single cab, short-bed pickup truck.

The suspect was last seen driving westbound on Dufort Road near the Priest River bridge. He is considered armed and dangerous.

The investigation is ongoing and no further details are available at this time, BCSO said.
