Teens Arrested Trying To Burglarize Gun Shop

Two 16-year-old boys have been arrested for trying to break in through the roof of a Tyler gun shop.

It happened Thursday night at the Shootist gun shop on South Broadway. A nearby citizen called police after spotting the pair, and when police arrived, the teens fled in a car.

They were caught a short time later and confessed that they had cut a hole in the roof, trying to get inside.

No guns were taken.
