The Associated Press

SANDPOINT, Idaho — Authorities say a 57-year-old Elmira resident shot in the face during a home invasion was also doused with gasoline.

Court documents obtained by the Bonner County Daily Bee say the man sustained a superficial wound on his cheek from a bullet and the gas wasn’t ignited during Monday’s attack.

Three men are in custody on a variety of charges.

Twenty-two-year-old Joseph Vencil Kluck Jr., a transient from Renton, Wash., is charged with attempted murder, armed robbery, second-degree kidnapping and resisting arrest. He is being held in the Bonner County Jail on $150,000 bail.

Eighteen-year-old Joseph Eugene Cleveland, of Sandpoint, is charged with second-degree kidnapping, robbery and resisting arrest.

Twenty-two-year-old Jonathan Lee Comstock, of Sandpoint, is also charged with robbery and resisting arrest.

Cleveland and Comstock are being held in the Bonner County Jail on $50,000 bail.
