Authorities in New York and Tennessee are looking for a man and woman who kidnapped a Tennessee woman at gunpoint last Tuesday then used her as bait to shoot someone else.

Jarret Cole “Shroom” Heitmann, 24, and Makayla Danielle Stilwell, 22, then drove to New York, where on Saturday they broke into a home in a private community and left the homeowner with a deep gash on his head, according to the Times Herald-Record in Middletown, N.Y.

Police say last week, the pair went to a woman’s home and forced her out at gunpoint. They drove the woman to another house, forced her to knock on the door, and when someone emerged, they shot the man in the chest, police said. Dustin Bishop is recovering from his wounds and is expected to survive, Fox News reported.

The homeowner in New York told the Herald-Record that the pair entered his home at about 3 a.m. and stole a gun. He did not say how he was injured.

Heitmann and Stilwell were later spotted in Pine Bush, N.Y.

New York State Police sent out multiple emergency cell phone alerts across Ulster and Sullivan counties Saturday to warn residents to lock their doors and remain inside.

“We’re following leads as they come in, but with something like this we get a lot of them,” said state police Sgt. T.J. Mannix, who spoke outside the Troop F offices in Wurtsboro late Saturday afternoon. “It’s our top priority to find them because they are very dangerous. You have to be vigilant. If you see something, let us know.”

Both are charged with Attempted Second Degree Murder, Aggravated Kidnapping, two counts of Aggravated Assault, Reckless Endangerment and Aggravated Robbery.

Heitmann, 24, is a white male who stands 6’1” and weighs approximately 165 pounds. He has brown hair and blue eyes.  Stilwell, 22, is a white female who stands 5’8” and weighs 135 pounds. She has brown hair and green eyes.  Both individuals should be considered armed and dangerous.  Anyone with information concerning their whereabouts should contact the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.

New Yorkers with tips should call the state police in Middletown at 845-344-5300.

There is a $1,000 reward for information leading to their arrest.
