TAYLOR RIDGE — The Rock Island County Sheriff's Office has issued a warrant for a second suspect in a Friday residential burglary. 

Officers seek Devin Thomas Stevens, 30, for residential burglary and resisting a police officer, according to a Wednesday news release. His bond is $50,000. 

Stevens is wanted in connection with an incident Friday, when a deputy's gun discharged during a struggle.



Here's what happened, according to Rock Island County:  

A deputy arrived at about 3 p.m. to investigate a burglary in progress, and he chased two people who fled the scene.

He caught up with a woman who resisted arrest. During a struggle, she tried to disarm the deputy, and a single shot was fired from his gun.
