LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Three men are behind bars in Calcasieu Parish with attempted first degree murder and burglary charges.

Those charges have been filed against 19-year old Ronald Lazaro from Lake Charles, 18-year old Zachary England of Moss Bluff, and 35-year old Tony Washington from Houston, Texas.

The three were arrested after a police officer patrolling the neighborhood pulled their car over when he saw them throwing items out of the car window.

The investigation revealed that on Thursday morning, a man returned to his home on Royer Loop in Sulphur. When he walked inside, he noticed his door was unlocked and he heard noises coming from inside the home.

He ran outside to call 911, and while he was on the phone with them, two men walked out of his home. They shot at the man four times, then fled on foot. The man saw the two men get into a car and drive away.

Lazaro and England reportedly pried open the back door of the home and stole several items, including a Wii video game system, some jewelry, three pistols, a laptop computer and a camcorder. Washington was driving the car.

Each of the three men have had a bond set at $380,000.
