OKLAHOMA CITY - A teenager is in custody and two others are on the run after police said the trio broke into a gun range in Oklahoma City.

It took place early Wednesday morning at H&H Shooting Sports, near I-40 and Meridian.

The business has 102 security cameras, which caught the alleged suspects breaking through a door before they scaled a wall to get to the other side,.

Once there, the alleged suspects broke display cases and got away with a shotgun that was later recovered.

"We got the one unit that they got out of the building, we got it back, so we have no loss other than damage," said H&H Shooting Sports Owner Miles Hall.

Broken glass, cracked display cases and a big mess left for owner Miles Hall to clean up at H&H Shooting Sports.

"The minute they broke the glass, the alarm went off," said Hall.

It was around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday  when police got the call about a break in.

When officers got to H&H, a car was leaving the parking lot without headlights.

Police followed the car and that's when the alleged suspects led officers on a chase. It came to an end at I-40 and MacArthur when the driver hit a light pole.

Everyone in the car took off running, but officers were able to arrest one out of the three suspects, a 15-year-old boy.

Police also recovered that stolen shotgun from the car.

"Bad guys do things and it's always annoying and it's always sort of sad that they do that and we try our best to build up all of the barricades that we can," said Hall.

The teen will likely be charged with a felony for burglary and driving a stolen getaway car.

For the others still on the run, Hall has a strong message.

"Better turn yourself in because they're going to find you, might as well turn yourself in," said Hall.

Police are reviewing surveillance video to identify the other two suspects.

If you know any information, you’re asked to call Crime Stoppers (405) 235-7300.
