OKLAHOMA CITY -- A teenage driver is killed after crashing his car along N.W. Expressway.

The 17-year-old victim died when his car struck a tree outside a Panda Express restaurant.

Those who saw the crash told police the victim had been speeding before losing control of the car.

Police say Brian Durini died from his injuries.

While the crash remains under investigation, police allegedly found a gun inside the car stolen from Sooner State Pawn.

Last week, four thieves crashed a stolen car into the pawn shop and stole nine guns.

The same suspects also used a second car to smash their way into a gun store on Council Rd.

Right now, police don't know how the victim in the crash got the stolen gun.

"It's unclear what role the deceased played in the burglary. It's unclear if he was involved, but we know a firearm stolen in that incident was in the car with him," said Oklahoma City Police MSgt. Gary Knight.

Police have arrested one suspect Queshawn Wilson for the smash and grab.

His three accomplices remain at large.

Managers at the pawn shop say nine guns were stolen, but three of those have since been recovered.

As recently as February, the crash victim had been a student at Emerson High School. He was not currently enrolled with the district.
