The suspects continued to yell, prompting the family dog to take a defensive position in front of one of the children that were inside the house, according to the sheriff’s office.
“The suspect then fired one shot, grazing the dog along the right side of his face. ... The suspect then pointed his weapon on the children and yelled to keep the kids quiet.”
Cash and four rifles were stolen from inside the house and then the suspects forced the wife into the family’s SUV at gunpoint.
“The suspect made the female drive to an ATM and withdraw money before making her drive into the city of Dayton and forcing her out of the vehicle at gunpoint,” the sheriff’s office said. “The suspect then fled the area in the homeowner’s vehicle, leaving the female victim alone in an alleyway.”
The SUV and the guns were found and all three suspects remain in custody.
