POCATELLO — Police have released photos of two suspects who allegedly shot a 55-year-old man in his Pocatello home early Friday morning.

The surveillance photos show the older male suspect was wearing a white Adidas hat, black leather jacket and jeans. A younger male suspect was wearing jeans and an orange and cream sweatshirt.

Investigators say the men may have been attempting to commit a burglary at a nearby business and the victim possibly observed the crime in progress. As a result, police say the suspects forcibly entered the victim’s residence on the 1200 block of North Main Street. The man was shot once in the abdomen before the suspects fled the scene. A juvenile was also in the home at the time of the shooting.
