Two people were injured in a shooting at a coffee shop in northern Idaho.

Post Falls Police says officers were called to Kokopelli Coffee on Highway 41 in Post Falls after it was reported there were two people with gunshot wounds.

The suspect had taken off.

Shortly after, Post Falls PD says there was a report of an armed carjacking at Highway 53 and McGuire Road. Police say the original vehicle used to drive from the coffee shop was abandoned near a home near Hayden Avenue and the suspect had stolen another vehicle which he drove to the carjacking location.

Deputies with the Kootenai County Sheriff's Office took the suspect, 31-year-old Tisen Sterkel from Newport, Wash., into custody. Authorities say the two victims are both in stable condition at Kootenai Health in Coeur d'Alene.
