The shooter fled.

The homeowner arrived home as the male was exiting the residence.

An officer from Police Dog Services attended the scene with Police Dog Eddie and was able to quickly recover the firearms the suspect had hidden in the bush.

Isaiah Flett, 18, from Peguis, Manitoba is facing the following charges:
Reckless Discharge of Firearm
Injure or Endanger Animals
Breaking and Entering with Intent
Break and Enter to Steal Firearm

Flett is remanded in custody.

Boomer was pronounced deceased at the veterinarian’s office.
